He received his Ph.D from University of Tennessee Knoxville in 1975, MS from University of Denver. Dr. Edward J Pavlik research interests includes, to prospectively evaluate the false positive (FP) rate of the screening algorithm for distinguishing benign ovarian structures from ovarian malignancies, to assess the degree to which serial trans vaginal ultrasonography identifies the fallopian tubes and changes in size and structure of the fallopian tubes, to assess the effect of serial trans vaginal ultrasonography on the discovery of early stage disease regionally and statewide and to determine if improvements in disease specific mortality occur as evidenced by lower deaths due to ovarian cancer in regions where screening participation is highest, to assess the expression & molecular signatures of STIC (serous tubal intraepithelial carcinoma) in serous carcinomas of the ovary, fallopian tube and endometrium.
