The List laboratory is a highly translational lab that focuses on identifying drivers of Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) disease development in an effort to identify novel therapeutic strategies. We work closely with the Drug Discovery department to develop in-house, novel therapeutics to treat these disorders. We also work closely with the Malignant Hematology department to initiate clinical trials and to study biological correlatives. Our goal is to identify at-risk individuals sooner, treat those newly diagnosed quicker and more effectively, and devise novel actions of treatment for higher risk individuals. Ultimately, we hope to alter the natural history of this disease
