Dr. Lamba has more than 20 years of expertise, training and knowledge skills in the field of pharmacogenomics. Dr Lamba’s research is focused on discovery and clinical validation of genomic/epigenomic markers predictive of therapeutic outcome in pediatric acute myeloid leukemia patients. This research spans from pharmacogenomic aspects to establishing and investigating molecular landscape and resistance mechanisms of profound prognostic relevance in pediatric AML. Overall, her research has multi-directional consequences: development of prognostic score that identifies patients at higher risk of disease resistance/relapse; establishing pathways of drug-resistance and identifying agents with potential to overcome resistance to standard chemotherapy. Dr. Lamba is currently Professor and Graduate Program Director at University of Florida, she is very committed towards training of future generation of scientist. She has trained 8 Ph.
