Professor Riccardo Dalla Favera

Professor Riccardo Dalla Favera, Columbia University, presents: The makings of Human B cell lymphoma?

Event Information

Open to



Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre (Wilkins Building), UCL, London

Prof Favera’s research yields new insights into the biological mechanisms responsible for B-cell lymphoma development, with direct implications for the development of novel treatment strategies.

The general goal of his laboratory is to elucidate the pathogenesis of cancers derived from B lymphocytes, known as B cell lymphomas. These tumours originate from the malignant transformation of germinal centre B cells, via acquisition of genomic lesions involving oncogenes and tumour suppressor genes. Favera’s research group wants to identify these lesions, determine the mechanism by which they occur and elucidate the contribution of each lesion to tumour development using genetically modified mouse models. These studies are also aimed at identifying targets for therapeutic intervention.
