Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My laboratory studies the tissue expression pattern of proteins that are of potential interest for the diagnosis, prognostic stratification and therapy of patients with lymphoma and leukemia. We are currently investigating prognostic markers in diffuse large B-cell lymphoma such that risk groups can be better defined. We are also interested in the immunodiagnostic and molecular characterization of rare and aggressive hematopoietic tumors such as Natural Killer/T-cell lymphomas, histiocytic malignancies and childhood lymphomas.
