As a gastrointestinal surgeon with a specialty in pancreas and hepatobiliary surgery, a substantial portion of my clinical practice involves caring for patients with GI and HPB malignancy. My major interest within this sub-discipline is pancreatic disease. In this context, my research goals are two:
- Clinical research: To continue to expand and build upon an already active clinical research program within the pancreatic service.
- Basic science research: The fundamental platform of my basic science laboratory program is to evaluate pancreatic disease in the context of obesity.
