Department of Pathology
Elizabeth Hyjek’s interests include translational research that applies morphology, immunohistochemistry, and molecular genetic techniques to understanding the pathogenesis of lymphoproliferative disorders and myeloid neoplasms. She is also interested in the standardization of immunohistochemistry for diagnostic and clinical research purposes, and the application of multicolor flow cytometry in the diagnosis of hematopoietic neoplasms and detection of minimal residual disease (MRD).
Her research has been extensively published in peer-reviewed journals, including Blood, Nature Communications, Cancer Research, Molecular Cancer Research, the American Journal of Clinical Pathology, Leukemia & Lymphoma, Modern Pathology, the International Journal of Laboratory Hematology, and Applied Immunohistochemistry & Molecular Morphology.
Hyjek earned an MD and PhD from the Medical University of Lodz, Poland. She held a research fellowship in hematopathology at the University College London Medical School and postdoctoral fellowships at the Temple University School of Medicine and Thomas Jefferson University. She also completed a residency in anatomic and clinical pathology and a clinical fellowship in hematopathology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College.
