Research interests

As a doctor-in-training and PhD student at the Div. of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, MUV I am especially interested in colorectal cancer, colorectal cancer prevention and hereditary cancer syndroms. As a member of a.o. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Monika Ferlitsch's team my research focus lies on optimizing screening colonoscopy (bowel preperation, polypectomy technique etc). In the framework of my diploma thesis (supervisor: o.Univ.Prof. Dr. Michael Trauner) I studied tumor and patient characteristics of individuals with mismatch repair deficient colorectal cancer.
