Timeline of Research Discoveries on MiT Family Translocation Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) (Xp11 translocation RCC and t(6;11) RCC) At Johns Hopkins

Ongoing Projects

  • Genomic profiling of Xp11 translocation RCC by microRNA analysis
  • Identification of novel gene fusions in Xp11 cancers, and their relation to tumor phenotype (PEComa, Renal Cell Carcinoma, Melanotic Xp11 Renal Cancer) and clinical behavior
  • Creation of a Registry for Xp11 (TFE3) and t(6;11) Translocation cancers
