Area of Interest

My research is primarily focused on targeted therapy for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). My group has examined various signaling pathways, including PI3K/mTOR and Myc, and their impact on the initiation and progression of lymphoma. We have also developed and validated a number of lymphoma xenograft and genetically-engineered mouse models for this project. In addition, we have performed translational research to identify novel anti-lymphoma compounds in these models. We hope this targeted approach against signaling pathways will enhance the efficacy of most traditional chemotherapeutics for treatment of NHL.
