Dr. Sohani's major research interest is in the identification of novel pathologic, immunophenotypic and molecular markers in lymphoma that may help to define new clinicopathologic entities and predict tumor behavior and response to therapy. She was the lead author on a study that was the first to describe an unusual, non-neoplastic CD4+CD8dim+ T-cell population in nodular lymphocyte predominant Hodgkin's lymphoma (NLPHL). The recognition of this population has enhanced the diagnostic role of flow cytometry in Hodgkin's lymphoma, and suggests a pathogenetic function for non-neoplastic T cells in this disease. This finding is included among the diagnostic criteria for NLPHL in the 2008 WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues. Many of her ongoing studies are in collaboration with the Mass General Hospital Cancer Center, and in this capacity she led a multidisciplinary team of investigators in characterizing a group of high-grade B-cell neoplasms with concurrent MYC and IGH-BCL2 rearrangements. This study currently represents the best characterized group of these rare lymphomas from a pathological standpoint. In addition to her research interests in lymphoma, Dr. Sohani is exploring ways that telemedicine and web-based learning can be used to enhance the delivery of pathology services in resource-limited settings and provide educational support to pathologists practicing in medically underserved regions of the world.
