I study comparative oncology, meaning cancers that occur in both animals and people. The old saying, “people resemble their pets” is quite true. One cancer that is quite similar in both dogs and people is lymphoma. Lymphoma, a cancer of immune cells in the blood, is a “liquid tumor” that can affect every organ in the body. Precisely how lymphoma picks which organs to invade has stumped physicians and scientists for decades.

2019 Summer Research Opportunity in Pathology Program (SROPP)

The primary objective of the ASIP Summer Research Opportunity Program in Pathology (SROPP) is to promote the entry of undergraduate students into basic and translational research laboratories that are working on topics relevant to human diseases. Preference is given to undergraduate students from underrepresented groups (broadly defined) that perform summer research in the laboratory of [...]
