M. Lia Palomba, MD

I am a medical hematologist and oncologist who specializes in the care of patients with lymphoma. I also devote much of my time to laboratory-based research. My research interest is the development of novel vaccine therapies for lymphoma, particularly DNA vaccination against proteins found on lymphoma cells. These efforts, initially conducted using laboratory models, will ultimately lead to clinical trials of vaccines for patients with lymphoma.
