    Research Interests:Dr. Jiang's picture

    I am a surgical pathologist with a specialty in genitourinary pathology (GU) and oncological pathology. My major field of research interest is the development of biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of malignant tumors. I first found P504S/a-methylacyl-CoA racemase (AMACR) to be a good diagnostic marker for prostatic adenocarcinoma in 2001 and then I published a series papers discussing the various diagnostic utilities of P504S/AMACR in prostate cancer and other cancers. Now, P504S/AMACR is being widely used in clinical practice for the diagnosis of prostatic carcinoma. Furthermore, I recently discovered IMP3, an oncofetal protein, as a new prognostic biomarker for renal cell carcinoma and urothelial carcinoma. In addition, IMP3 may have potential diagnostic and prognostic values for other malignant tumors, such as gastrointestinal and gynecological cancers.
