Description of Research Expertise

Molecular genetics and pathology of Leukemias and Lymphomas; Myelodysplastic syndromes; Minimal residual disease; Hodgkin lymphoma

Description of Itmat Expertise

Dr. Bagg studies: (1) the diagnostic molecular pathology of hematologic malignancies, with the development of novel assays to facilitate their diagnosis; (2) minimal residual disease testing in leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma; and (3) unraveling the biology and improving the laboratory diagnosis of the myelodysplastic syndromes.
