Jeffrey W. Tyner, Ph.D.

May 31, 2013

Dr. Jeffrey W. Tyner from the Knight Cancer Institute received a V Scholar Grant from The V Foundation in 2012. Tyner recently isolated the molecular mutation that causes chronic neutrophilic leukemia (CNL) and atypical chronic myeloid leukemia (aCML). This discovery will greatly assist doctors diagnosing these cancers, as it will enable them to distinguish CNL and aCML from others. Read more about Tyner and this new development here.
