Dolores H. Lopez-Terrada, MD, PhD

About Laboratory

Dr. Lopez-Terrada’s laboratory is dedicated to the molecular characterization of hepatoblastoma and other pediatric liver tumors. The laboratories ongoing research projects include: genetic profiling of hepatoblastoma and other pediatric hepatocellular neoplasms using methods such as cancer genomics, to identify critical signaling pathways, mutations, copy number and epigenetic changes that are associated with disease prognosis, or that otherwise may be used as therapeutic targets. Her laboratory is also dedicated to clinical translation and to develop new genetic and molecular clinical tests that could be used to refine the diagnosis, clinical stratification and disease monitoring of pediatric liver cancer patients.
