Lymphoma & Leukemia Program

About Lymphoma and Leukemia

Since lymphoma is a cancer of the immune system, a major scientific goal of the Lymphoma and Leukemia Program is to use knowledge gained from immunology to understand and treat lymphoid malignancies. This goal is being accomplished by gaining better understanding of the biology underlying lymphoid and myeloid neoplasms and applying this knowledge to improve the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.

Program Aims:

  • Discover the Genetic and Cellular Origins of Lymphomas and Leukemias
  • Develop Novel Methods of Diagnosis and Biomarker Monitoring of these Diseases
  • Develop New Therapies
