Andy Chen MD, PhD

Dr. Chen's research focuses on understanding the biochemical mechanisms responsible for the genetic phenomenon known as DRT/DMC. Using both cytogenetic and biochemical techniques, he has been able to show a delay in protein recruitment to the chromosome. Dr. Chen's research continues to use these methods to further identify these mechanisms and their aberration within malignant cells. As a member of the stem cell transplant team, Dr. Chen hopes his research will further advance the treatment of this disease.
