M James You
Department of Hematopathology
University of Texas, USA
Dr. M. James You earned his PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Texas at Austin. His postdoctoral training was in the laboratory of Dr. Ronald A. DePinho at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, where he studied PTEN and INK4a tumor suppressor genes in inhibiting the genesis of a variety of tumors. Dr. You obtained his medical degree from China, and underwent his clinic training in anatomic pathology and hematopathology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Dr. You joined UT MD Anderson Cancer Center as an attending pathologist in 2006. His main clinic interest is hematopathology. Dr. You’s research laboratory focuses on cancer genetics and pathobiology, and translational pathology
Genetically engineered mouse models
My laboratory is interested in cancer biology and genetics as well as translational research. Our current focus is myeloid and lymphoid neoplasm using genetic and oncogenomic approaches to uncover important genetic events that may drive tumor initiation and progression. In addition, we complement basic mechanistic studies with translational research on human tumor specimens, which helps to correlate genetic changes, expression profiling, or other molecular signatures with clinical behavior and outcome.
