Zijun Yidan Xu-Monette
Assistant Professor in Pathology

My research efforts have been focused on identifying prognostic and therapeutic biomarkers in B-cell lymphoma. My research interests also include investigation of molecular and immune mechanisms underlying the poor clinical outcomes of lymphoma, the pathogenesis and evolution of drug resistant clones, and development of novel therapies for aggressive B-cell lymphoma.

Current Research Interests

  1. The p53 pathway in lymphoma
  2. High-grade B-cell lymphomas with double-hit cytogenetics and the MYC biology
  3. Immunosuppressive mechanisms in lymphomas and determinants shaping the immune response in the tumor microenvironment
  4. Genetic and epigenetic profiling
  5. Therapeutic strategies for the refractory/relapsed lymphoma
  6. New tools for diagnosis, risk prediction, and therapeutic selection in lymphoma.
