The Ahmet Dogan Lab
The Ahmet Dogan lab within the Hematopathology Service establishes new diagnostic approaches and diagnostic test utilization algorithms, which will determine the standard of care for the hematopathology practice. The Service catalogues and analyzes the pathological features of hematological malignancies diagnosed at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. This effort is part of the mission of the Service, which aims to develop start of the art diagnostics and biological correlates for clinical research into hematological malignancies through retrospective analysis of pathological phenotypes and genotypes, using existing medical records and biospecimens as an investigative tool. Novel observations and findings from these analyses will be used to develop evidence-based practice guidelines and technology development strategies.
