I am involved in the histopathologic diagnosis of biopsies from the lungs, pleura, and mediastinum. Furthermore, I am also involved in numerous clinicopathological and translational studies in thoracic pathology with colleagues in pulmonary medicine, thoracic surgery, oncology, and other basic scientists. My primary research interests are in lung cancer, where I am director the Lung Pathology and Molecular Analysis Core for the Emory Lung Cancer Program Project;
