Dr. Tao received his MD in China at Henan Medical University in 1985, and his MS in pathology from Peking Union College in Peking, China. In 1994 he earned his PhD in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology at the University of Miami School of Medicine in Florida. In 1996 he completed a postdoctoral fellowship in hematology and oncology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Tao is a trained hematopathologist and physician-scientist who is well versed in both basic and translational studies in hematologic tumors, with special interest and emphasis in B-cell malignancies: genetic and epigenetic mechanisms of microenvironment-induced survival and drug resistance in B lymphomas. For the last decade, his laboratory has independently studied the role of stroma-mediated B-cell lymphoma survival, drug resistance and tumor progression. His team has demonstrated that the lymphoma “tumor microenvironment” is a critical determinant for lymphoma initiation, progression, response to therapy, and drug resistance. His long-term objective is to characterize the pathobiology of B-cell lymphomas, especially aggressive type B cell malignancies. He is interested and experienced in identifying major molecular determinants for drug response and resistance, as well as novel targets for overcoming or preventing drug resistance evolution in mantle cell lymphoma and double hit lymphoma (DHL).

0 patients rated this provider
The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.Learn more about our patient comments
