About Laszlo Perlaky, Ph.D.

Dr. Laszlo Perlaky currently focuses to oversee and conduct tissue procurement, processing, distribution and storage services for the Texas Children’s Cancer Center. He interested to establish primary and continuous tumor tissue cultures, characterize those, using cell biology, immuno-cytochemistry and cellular biology techniques. Prior to coming to Hematology-Oncology, Dr. Perlaky studied the function, intracellular localization and translocation of nucleolar proteins in different modality treated tumor cells.

Dr. Perlaky’s current studies focus on nucleolar proteins, their translocation, and association to argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regions proteins, and to other oncogene or tumor suppressor gene products in cancer cells. Dr. Perlaky presently collaborates with investigators at Texas Children’s Cancer Center to study telomerase biology, genomic instability, protein movement and association during cell cycle in pediatric tumors.
