Maligne Lymphome

Andreas Rosenwald: Pathogenesis of Malignant Lymphomas


Our group is interested in the pathogenesis of malignant lymphomas, including B- and T-cell Non-Hodgkin lymphomas, classic Hodgkin lymphoma and multiple myeloma. We use cytogenetic and molecular approaches as well as profiling and sequencing technologies to decipher pathogenetically relevant genetic and molecular changes of these tumors. This strategy might help to identify relevant targets for future therapeutic approaches.
