Blood and Lymphatic Cancer: Targets and Therapy

Professor Dingli

Hematology and Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, United States

Professor Dingli

Editor-in-Chief: David Dingli

Dr Dingli is an associate professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic where he has a joint appointment between the Division of Hematology and the Department of Molecular Medicine. He is also an adjunct professor within the Biomedical Informatics and Computational Biology (BICB) Program at the University of Minnesota, Rochester. His hematology training has taken him to the University of Glasgow Hospitals and then Mayo Clinic. For his PhD thesis, he researched the use of replication competent measles viruses for therapy of multiple myeloma. He has generated a recombinant virus that can be non-invasively tracked in vivo using molecular imaging strategies. This vector is now in clinical trials in patients with advanced myeloma. His clinical practice is devoted to patients with plasma cell disorders and chronic myeloid leukemia.

Dr Dingli’s research also includes the use of mathematical and computational models to understand tumor development and evolution, hematopoietic stem cell dynamics, and hematopoiesis as well as therapy of hematopoietic tumors with recombinant viruses and other novel agents. He trained in mathematical biology at Mayo Clinic, the University of Tennessee (Knoxville), the Santa Fe Institute, and the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University where he was a Mayo Clinic Scholar for two years.  He has applied mathematical and computational modeling to a variety of disorders including multiple myeloma, chronic myeloid leukemia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, and cyclic hematopoiesis. 

On a national and international level, Dr Dingli is on the editorial advisory board of several journals and serves as a reviewer for many journals. He is also a reviewer for numerous funding agencies in the United States and Europe.

Dr Gonsalves

Dr Gonsalves is an assistant professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in the Division of Hematology. He completed his medical school and internal medicine residency at Creighton University School of Medicine and his fellowship training in hematology/oncology as well as an advanced fellowship in dysproteinemias at the Mayo Clinic. His clinical practice focuses on the management of patients with plasma cell disorders such as multiple myeloma, light chain amyloidosis etc. His translational research focuses on understanding the cellular metabolism of malignant plasma cells in diseases such as multiple myeloma by employing a variety of systems biology techniques in an integrated fashion. He is also interested in enhancing the supportive care of patients with plasma cell disorders by incorporating clinical interventions to improve symptoms and quality of life. He also studies population-based outcomes in various plasma cell. Dr. Gonsalves leads several investigator-initiated early phase clinical trials evaluating novel therapeutics in plasma cell disorders. Finally, he has authored an co-authored several publications on clinical and translational research in plasma cell disorders. He serves on the editorial board for several other peer-reviewed journals as well as a reviewer with an expertise in plasma cell disorders for several journals.
