Dr. Christine M. Eischen has made seminal discoveries into how B cell lymphoma develops, grows, and survives. Her laboratory focuses on identifying and characterizing alterations in oncogene and tumor suppressor pathways and utilizes many experimental approaches to address physiologically and clinically relevant aspects of lymphoma. Dr. Eischen currently holds multiple grants from the National Cancer Institute to fund her research program and is a former Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Scholar. Dr. Eischen is also an active mentor of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, and junior faculty and has received several mentoring awards. This year, Dr. Eischen was recruited to Thomas Jefferson University and the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center where she co-leads the Molecular Biology and Genetics Program. She also serves as a Special Advisor to the President of Thomas Jefferson University on research. Dr. Eischen and her laboratory have recently identified previously unknown contributors to lymphoma development and survival that are potential new avenues of treating lymphomas.
