Uncovering Gene-Environment Interactions in Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL) and Its Subtypes: An Interlymph Workshop

Thursday, April 15, 2010 - Friday, April 16, 2010
Natcher Conference Center, Bethesda, MD

The goals of this conference were to coordinate and conduct pooled analyses of six gene-environment interactions for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and to ascertain potential differences by NHL subtypes. This allowed us to understand the determinants of lymphomagenesis and identify potentially common mechanisms of action for lymphomagenesis between targeted genes and environmental risk factors. Scientific collaborations achieved from this meeting were aimed at enhancing interdisciplinary research in this understudied area of research.
