Lymphoma research

Lymphoma Genomics

Lymphoma is a common cancer that may be divided into numerous sub-types.  Our laboratory has focused on using next-generation sequencing to identify somatic genomic alternations (mutations) and changes in RNA expression in lymphoma samples, to better understand the molecular events responsible for lymphoma development, progression, and transformation.  We have teamed up with collaborators at The Genome Institute at Washington University, and current projects focus on follicular lymphoma.  Lymphoma team collaborators at Washington University include Nancy Bartlett, Amanda Cashen, Ken CarsonNina Wagner-Johnston., and Friederike Kreisel.
