“The scientist is not a person who gives the right answers, he's one who asks the right questions.”

The Lab Team
The Melnick lab welcomes a diverse set of talents and fosters an interdisciplinary approach in its attempts to translate fundamental scientific discoveries into clinical innovations.
The Melnick lab is based in New York City at the Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center of the Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
The Melnick lab's mission is to investigate the molecular underpinnings of cancer, and devise new treatments that combine lab and clinical innovations to directly benefit patients.
Our aim is to understand the mechanisms through which transcriptional and epigenetic regulation occur during normal differentiation and how these processes become disrupted in human leukemias and lymphomas and to use this information to develop specific and potent therapeutic strategies.
