Dr. Dolores López-Terrada's research interests focus on the applications of molecular genetics techniques, in regards to the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with pediatric sarcomas.
Dr. López-Terrada is interested in the biology of embryonal malignancies, pediatric liver tumors, and soft tissue tumors, and the development of molecular testing for their diagnosis. The laboratory is involved in genomic, expression and microRNA profiling of histologic subtypes of pediatric liver tumors, and in the analysis of developmental and oncogenic pathways relevant to hepatoblastoma and other pediatric liver tumors. In addition, the Molecular Oncology Laboratory is dedicated to the development and clinical implementation of molecular tests for the diagnosis, prognosis, and monitoring of pediatric myeloproliferative disorders, soft tissue tumors and hepatic malignancies.
