Our lab studies the immunologic and molecular mechanisms underlying cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) and other T-cell mediated skin diseases.
About Dr. Duvic
Madeleine Duvic, M.D., has been principal investigator of numerous clinical trials and translational research studies of T-cell mediated diseases and malignancies, including T-cell lymphomas, melanoma and skin cancer. Her work focuses on developing and improving therapies for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL).
Duvic operates the largest clinical program for mycosis fungoides in the world. Moreover, she has the largest mycosis fungoides patients’ specimen collection in the world.
She serves on Medical and Scientific Boards of the National Alopecia Areata Foundation and Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation and is the Principal Investigator of the Alopecia Areata Registry. Duvuc is also director of the Research Fellowship Program within the Department of Dermatology, Division of Internal Medicine.
A tutorial in her laboratory would involve molecular biology techniques, tissue culture, gene modulation with siRNAs, immunology, immunohistochemistry, and mouse tumor models, depending on the project selected.
