Academic Interests

Dr. Cohen’s research focuses on interactions between tumor cells and their stromal microenvironment. His laboratory specifically studies mechanisms of recruitment and engraftment of bone marrow-derived angiogenic precursor cells during tumor neovascularization. In addition to studying these processes in pre-clinical murine models, Dr. Cohen has also established expertise in the use of flow cytometry to enumerate circulating precursor cells in patients treated on anti-angiogenic clinical trials. The goal of his research is to identify targets for anti-angiogenic therapy of tumors, as well as to discover novel cell based biomarkers of therapeutic response.
 

Clinical Interests

Hodgkin’s lymphoma and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
