Narrative icon

  My research focus is on risk factors in breast cancer development; cytochrome P450 modulation in response to drug treatment; validation of natural product agents as chemotherapeutic agents, particularly Vernonia amygdalina, a Nigerian plant effective in tumor regression; and causal factors in disparities in both health and in professional advancement among African American women.
