Funded in 2017
Principal Investigator:
Jacqueline Payton, MD, PhD
Goal: To better understand and provide critical insight into the role that a newly discovered class of RNA molecules have in the development of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Limited understanding of the biological changes that contribute to lymphoma progression is a major obstacle to developing new treatments. At the completion of these studies, her team expects to provide critical insight into Lymphoma disease and the potential to discover new therapeutic targets.
