I am a surgical pathologist,

specialised in the diagnosis of gynecologic and breast diseases, including
cancers, benign tumors, premalignant diseases, infectious diseases, hormonal alterations and developmental abnormalities of ovary, fallopian tube, peritoneum, uterine corpus, cervix, vulva, vagina and breast. I provide diagnostic pathology service for the Emergency Hospital Targu-Mures Romania at the Department of Pathology as well as for the Histopat-Invest laboratory Targu-Mures, Romania.

My educational activity

includes teaching students, residents and PhD students at UMFST Targu-Mures, Romania. I am a lecturer and course director of continuing education courses on gynecologic and breast pathology offered by national (EUROGYNPATH) and international (ESP, CAP, IAP, IGCS, ASCP, SLAP) organizations. I work as part of Project ECHO, a joint educational venture of the International Gynecologic Cancer Society and the International Society of Gynecologic Pathologists serving as a pathology mentor through remote sessions with cancer centres in Caribbean Countries.

My clinical research

focuses on 1. cervical pathology and 2. breast pathology. Romania has the highest incidence and mortality related to cervical cancer in Europe, so my main interest is related to cervical pathology. Recently, together with colleagues from Romania as well as other countries from Europe and other continents, I have worked toward improving the screening program and the diagnosis and management of cervical cancer. Also, we have worked on the traditional histologic classification scheme of adenocarcinoma of the cervix pushing toward a new classification linked to aetiology (HPV infection) which has a clinical impact providing a robust framework for the development of tailored cancer treatments for patients with endocervical cancer.
We are currently working on the molecular characterisation of the different histologic types of adenocarcinoma of the cervix as well as identifying new markers related to different patterns of invasion.
Also, revisiting the classification of adenocarcinomas of the vulva and vagina as well as squamous carcinoma of the cervix are also interesting research topics.
Prognostic and predictive factors in breast carcinoma is another main field of interest as Romania has a high incidence and mortality due to breast cancer in Europe. Morphologic and molecular heterogeneity in the primary tumor foci and axillary lymph node metastases, morphologic evaluation of the axilla were major topics of investigation within recent years.

I have published

over 400 scientific publications and 20 medical books as editor and/or main author.
I am currently the Chair of the Gynecologic Pathology Working Group (European Society of Pathology).
I am a member of the ISGyP Global Advisory Network. I am also a member of the Pathology National Committee in Romania.
I am a member of the expert panel of International Collaboration on Cancer Reporting (ICCR) Carcinoma of the Cervix dataset.
