My current research focus is on the experimental therapeutics and chemoprevention of bladder cancer. I have an interest in food-based interventions in bladder cancer prevention. Currently we are studying the in vitro and in vivo anti-bladder cancer effects of broccoli and its phytochemicals, defining novel mechanisms of action and completing necessary preclinical data for future human clinical trials.
