Ed Thornborrow, MD, PhD
Research and Clinical Interests
My interests include the diagnosis and study of hematologic malignancies with an emphasis on identifying novel sets of markers that provide clinically relevant diagnostic and prognostic information. In addition, I am interested in the development and implementation of new laboratory testing methodologies and quality improvement procedures that allow us to better serve our patient population.
