Research Interests

The Experimental Pathology Laboratory (EPL) is a facility for pathology attendings, residents and medical students to pursue academic research. Short and medium-term projects addressing translation research questions relevant to a broad range of pathological conditions are in progress. The EPL also provides support to the wider clinical research community at UVM/FAHC sharing its experience in the handling and analysis of pathology specimens and playing a part in multi-center grant funded projects. The laboratory has specialized in developing and optimizing PCR, immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization assays, and also has a particular interest in human papillomaviruses (HPV) and cervical disease.
