Hematologic Malignancies


Advances in genetic sequencing technology are accelerating our understanding of the molecular changes that lead to blood cancers. This includes analyzing genetic alterations linked to these diseases so doctors can match patients with the best treatments, exploring the potential of hematopoietic stem cells, and investigating epigenetic approaches to understanding and treating these malignancies.
