Research Summary

Dr. Aaron Logan is an Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). His clinical practice focuses on the management of patients with acute leukemias, myelodysplastic syndrome, aplastic anemia and hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. Dr. Logan also runs a research laboratory and is director of the Hematologic Malignancies Tissue Bank at UCSF. Dr. Logan and his laboratory are interested in methods for evaluating clonotypic diversity in the B and T lymphocyte repertoires in patients, particularly following hematopoietic cell transplantation when used to treat blood cancers, bone marrow failure disorders, and congenital immune deficiencies. Methods used in the laboratory currently include T cell receptor excision circle and kappa-deleting recombination circle (TREC/KREC) quantification, high-throughput sequencing of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor genes, and in vitro mixed lymphocyte reactions to identify T cells with specific reactivities. Efforts in the lab are focused on the application of immune repertoire profiling to quantify and track malignancy-, pathogen-, and autoantigen-targeted immune responses following allogeneic transplantation, as well as use of this platform to quantify measurable residual disease in lymphoid malignancies. In Dr. Logan’s lab, the Hematologic Malignancies Tissue Bank at UCSF has been built into a robust resource for samples isolated from patients with a wide diversity of blood cancers and following transplantation. These samples are made available in a deidentified manner to the UCSF and larger research community for cooperative discovery.
