Dr. Volanakis is interested in the genetic and epigenetic events that contribute to the pathogenesis and progression of acute leukemia. The lab uses experimental models of disease to investigate how pathways that contribute to normal lymphopoiesis are hijacked during leukemogenesis, and invoke the protective response of tumor suppressors.
