My research interest is in the area of radiation vasculopathy. We recently completed our retrospective research study on head and neck cancer patients who received radiation therapy to the head and neck. After analyzing our medical records, the majority of patients were at high risk of cardiovascular events. More information on this work: "Carotid Intima-Media Thickness Measurement Promises to Improve Cardiovascular Risk Evaluation in Head and Neck Cancer Patients." Our future plan in this field to explore biomarkers of atherosclerosis in setting of radiation therapy among head and neck cancer patients.
