Evolutionary dynamics in oncogenesis and response to therapy

Lymphomas are genetically diverse and complex ecosystems that evolve in response to selection pressure from the environment. By employing an array of molecular and cell biology techniques, we study how microenvironmental, metabolic and epigenetic heterogeneity interact and evolve with genetic of cancer cells and how this influences cancer progression and therapy success or failure.

The Lab Team

We are an interdisciplinary team of oncologists, biologists, bioegineers and bioinfomaticians that pursue a common goal of translating fundamental scientific discoveries into clinical innovations for the benefit of cancer patients. 

Our Research

Our mission is to devise new treatments that combine laboratory and clinical innovations to directly benefit patients.
