Human Oncology & Pathogenesis Program
Kojo S. Elenitoba-Johnson, MD
My research involves the elucidation of genetic and biologic insights of human malignant lymphomas. We leverage large-scale unbiased profiling including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics to identify candidate oncogenes and proteins that are pathogenetically relevant in lymphoma. We utilize molecular technologies, human tumor tissues and patient-derived xenografts and transgenic animal models to determine the functional significance of novel genes and proteins involved in lymphoma pathogenesis. Using primary tumors as our discovery models, the overall goal of our studies is to understand novel mechanisms of oncogenesis, identify tumor biomarkers and vulnerabilities that will facilitate early detection and precision therapies that improve patient outcomes.
