About Dr. Judy Margolin

Dr. Judith Margolin is interested in the patterns of gene expression, which occur in normal hemopoietic cells during development, differentiation, and immune response. Her lab also studies gene expression patterning in leukemic blast cells, hepatoblastoma cells, and other pediatric cancers. The role of transcription factors in controlling gene expression patterns, as well as the patterns themselves, is the subject of investigation. Current projects in the lab include identifying specific transcription factors that are expressed in these systems, investigating the transcriptional activities of known oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes, construction of cDNA library for sequencing and hybridization experiments, and the use of some of the key components of the expression patterns as therapeutic or immunologic targets for future therapies.

Dr. Margolin is Co-Director of the Vascular Anomalies Program and a member of the Leukemia Program, the Lymphoma Program, and the International Center.
