Research description

Lymphomas are a group of highly heterogeneous tumors derived from B or T lymphocytes and occur at both nodal and extranodal sites. The accurate diagnosis of various lymphoma subtypes is critical in clinical management and this depends on integrated histological, immunophenotypic and molecular investigations. We have been undertaking a series of research programmes to elucidate the pathology, immunophenotype, and molecular genetics of several lymphoproliferative disorders, particularly mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma, splenic marginal zone lymphoma (SMZL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), enteropathy associated T cell lymphoma (EATL), Kaposi sarcoma herpes virus (KSHV) associated lymphoproliferative disorders.
