Lab is for Translational Research in Hematology. Its main strength is the tight
collaboration and involvement of physicians from the Institute of Hematology at
the Davidoff Cancer Center, Rabin Medical Center. Our primary field of interest
is finding new or better therapies for the treatment of incurable hematological
malignancies. Our projects focus on understanding the effect of new agents on
different leukemia and lymphoma cell lines and patient samples and exploring the
deleterious side effects caused by customary agents used today. In addition, we
are studying the molecular pathways involved in the initiation and maintenance
of hematological tumorigenesis and are trying to understand the effect of the
different agents on these molecular pathways.
