Ken He Young
Professor of Pathology

I am a clinically-oriented diagnostic physician with clinical expertise in the pathologic diagnosis of hematologic cancers including tumors of the bone marrow, lymphoid tissue, spleen and pre-malignant hematologic conditions. Another area of interest is blood cancer classification with molecular and genetic profiling. In my research program, we focus on molecular mechanisms of tumor progression, cell-of-origin, biomarkers, and novel therapeutic strategies in lymphoma, myeloma and leukemia. In addition to patient care and translational research, medical education and scientific communication are also part of interest. Many residents, fellows, graduates and postdocs have worked and been trained in our program.

Current Research Interests

    1. Molecular and Genetic Profiling in Aggressive Lymphoma 
    2. Pathologic and Molecular Classification of Lymphoma
    3. Biomarker study and Risk Stratification in Lymphoma
