Carlo Croce, MD, is Professor of Medicine at Ohio State University. He studies the genetic mechanisms that lead to cancer, in particular microRNAs and their role in oncology. Dr Croce is especially interested in the early changes of malignancy, and how they might be used as targets for novel treatment and preventative agents.
Prof. Croce’s research contributed extensively to our awareness and understanding of a number of cancer related genes, including BCL2, ALL1, TCL1, FHIT and LZTS1. He has received various awards, including the 2006 Clowes Memorial Award from the American Association for Cancer Research for his discoveries of the molecular mechanisms of leukemia.
