Research Interest
Dr. Dorritie has been involved in laboratory research focusing on the development of novel therapeutic agents for acute myeloid leukemia. Her lab work focuses on targeting the JAK-STAT pathway, a pathway implicated in a variety of malignancies, including acute myeloid leukemia. More recently, she has become involved in the UPCI Cancer Therapeutics Program, with a focus on developing early phase clinical trials in lymphoid malignancies. She has a particular interest in high risk B-cell lymphomas. Dr. Dorritie also teaches a number of didactic lectures for both medical students and fellows and teaches clinically on the leukemia, stem cell transplant, and malignant hematology consult services.
