Research interests

My main research focus is to understand the importance of pancreatic cancer and neoplasic cystic lesions of the pancreas (ie. Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm IPMN; mucinous cystic neoplasm MCN) The research is designed to elucidate mechanisms underlying the different typs of pancreas cysts and to develop novel surgical approaches inpancreatic cancer surgery.
