Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Ferry's research interests include diagnosis and subclassification of lymphoma, and correlation of behavior of those lymphomas with their pathologic features. Dr. Ferry has a special interest in extranodal lymphomas, and in the differences in the types of lymphomas encountered in different extranodal sites, and in how they contrast with the types of lymphomas that arise in lymph nodes, as well as in the wide variety of risk factors that may contribute to the development of lymphoma of different types and in different sites.  Dr. Ferry has published many peer-reviewed papers, chapters and review articles on lymphoma, and has recently published a textbook, Extranodal Lymphomas.
