About the Speaker(s)

Ricardo Aguiar, M.D., Ph.D. Professor of Medicine Biochemistry Microbiology, and ImmunologyOur group focus is on the identification and functional characterization of the genetic abnormalities of hematologic malignancies. We utilize in vitro and in vivo systems in genome-wide or targeted studies to translate these discoveries into clinical initiatives. The principal disease model in our lab is B-cell lymphoma. Active research lines stem from our recently published work and include: 1) The intersection between B-cell receptor signaling and phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) as actionable therapeutic targets in mature B cell malignancies; 2) Metabolic imbalance and epigenetic reprogramming in lymphomas; 3) Transcription factor IRF8 and lymphomagenesis.
