Research Interests

My research interests are focused on deciphering key molecular events driving the premalignant stages of oral cancer. In particular, my goal is to investigate the role of microRNAs (miRNAs), a group of small non-protein-coding RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression, in the development of oral tumors from precancerous stages. In addition, I plan to assess which miRNAs have the greatest potential to be used as future biomarkers in a clinical setting.
