Positions

Overview

  • I am a hematopathologist with four decades of clinical and diagnostic expertise in Flow Cytometry, benign and neoplastic hematopathology, lymphoma, leukemia, myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative neoplasms, plasma cell neoplasms/myeloma, hemoglobinopathies and Surgical Pathology. As educator, I developed Hematopathology teaching guidelines and curriculum for UAB Hematopathology fellows/trainees, and collaborated with other national experts in publishing training guidelines for Hematopathology programs. I have similarly developed curriculum and teaching material for the UAB School of Medicine (UASOM) MS-II students. Additionally, I am the section Head of UAB Health system Hematology/Bone marrow laboratories, providing overall direction and responsible for QA/QC of the above laboratories.

    Research Overview

  • My research interests are in bone marrow topography, tissue microarrays (TMA), FISH, immuno-architecture in bone marrow and lymph nodes, needle biopsy techniques, muse models of leukemia, (in(16), FLIT3-ITD), IRESSA trial in non-small cell lung carcinomas and CD30 expression in mast cells. Other areas I did work on include digital imaging, image analysis, Web-technology and developing techniques for digital image quantification of hemophagocytosis in macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) on the bone marrow biopsies. I have collaborated extensively with UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center Investigators and other outside University Medical Centers on above research areas resulting in several peer reviewed publications.
