Lymphoid Development & Malignancy Major Themes

Members of the program represent seven basic-science departments, two clinical department, and one department at Weill-Cornell Medical Center, whose research relates to the following themes:

  • B- and T-lymphocyte development — exploring the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating normal lymphoid development
  • Pathogenesis of T-acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (T-ALL) and B-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (B-NHL) — identifying the genes altered in these diseases and their normal and pathologic function
  • Experimental therapeutics — developing new drugs and new drug combinations for the targeted treatment of T-ALL and B-NHL

The Program also hosts major collaborative activities including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Specialized Center for Lymphoma Research, and the National Center for Multi-scale Study of Cellular Networks.
