Leukemia Research

Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) is a retrovirus and the causative infectious agent of adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma (ATL), an aggressive and fatal malignancy of CD4+ T-cells. ATL occurs after an extensive clinical latency period upwards of several decades and lacks ideal therapeutic strategies. Not only is prognosis poor, but the molecular mechanism(s) behind disease development are not greatly understood. Dr. Panfil's lab utilizes molecular tools, coupled with both in vitro and in vivo models of infection and disease, to understand the cellular and viral players involved in genetic and epigenetic regulation of HTLV-1 gene expression and oncogenesis.
