The laboratories of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Pediatric Oncology Department are concentrated on research in the areas of molecular oncology, immunology, and hematopoiesis. Topics of investigation range from T cell signaling pathways, chromosomal translocations in childhood leukemias and stem cell function to the mechanisms governing chromosome segregation, tumor cell apoptosis, neural crest and cerebellar development. The diversity of research interests demostrated in each of the Department's laboratories is unified by a profound commitment to the development of innovative therapeutic treatements for the prevention and cure of cancers.
