Dr. Teachey's research focuses on investigating novel therapeutics for children with white blood cell diseases, including ALL and a rare autoimmune disease called Autoimmune Lymphoproliferative Syndrome (ALPS). His research in ALL focuses on studying leukemic cells from children with high-risk disease.
Dr. Thomas-Tikhonenko has a long-standing interest in the pathobiology of solid and hematopoietic malignancies, in particular lymphomas and leukemias and other cancers driven by MYC overexpression. Within that research space, his studies focus mainly (but not exclusively) on RNA-based regulatory mechanisms, such as microRNAs and alternative mRNA splicing.
Dr. Tong investigates cytokine receptor signaling in normal and neoplastic hematopoietic development. She uses integrated approaches encompassing biochemistry, molecular biology, mouse models, and primary human samples to understand signaling events emanating from cytokine receptors that regulate the development of hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells.
