About Us

IMG_0969Our lab uses the zebrafish as a genetic model organism to study several T cell cancer-prone genetic lines to investigate the genomic, genetic, and transcriptional events that underlie oncogenesis in both T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) and T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma (T-LBL).  Our studies are largely aimed at identifying unknown mutations predisposing zebrafish to T cell cancer and testing candidate compounds for treating T cell malignancies.
