  • Myelodysplastic syndrome
  • Myeloproliferative neoplasm
  • Acute leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Multiple myeloma

For diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutic targets for patients with hematologic neoplasms, we offer comprehensive ancillary testing, including:

  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Flow cytometric immunophenotyping
  • Cytogenetics/FISH
  • Next generation sequencing (NGS)

We also provide second opinions and expert consultation services for hematopathology cases initiated by pathologists, clinical colleagues or patients.

The members of our team are highly recognized in the field of hematopathology not only for their diagnostic expertise but also for their achievements in research. We have published hundreds of journal articles, including reports of novel diagnostic, prognostic or therapeutic biomarkers for lymphoma and leukemia. Many of us serve on the editorial board of high-impact journals and hold major leadership roles in national and international pathology societies.
