Carl Allen, MD, PhD

Carl Allen

Dr. Carl Allen is Principal Investigator of the Histiocytosis Lab and Co-Director of the Lymphoma Program at the Texas Children’s Hospital Cancer Center, as well as Chair of the Histiocyte Society Scientific Committee. His primary research is focused on the clinical and biologic aspects of Histiocytic Disorders including Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH), Juvenile Xanthogranuloma (JXG), Rosai-Dorfman Disease, Erdheim-Chester Disease, and Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis. Along with Dr. Kenneth McClain, Dr. Carl Allen has developed a dedicated Histiocytosis Program that sees over 150 new patients with Histiocytic Disorders annually, and all of their patients are invited to participate in research studies. Dr. Allen has developed gene expression and proteomic strategies to analyze the identity and function of the cells that cause Histiocytic Disorders. The ultimate goal of these experiments is to identify genes, proteins, and pathways that may be used to diagnose and cure patients. These experiments may also provide insight into dendritic cell biology and tumor immunology.
