Brief Description Principal Investigator
To describe the anti-tumor activity (efficacy) and toxicity (safety) of commercially available, targeted anti-cancer drugs used for treatment of patients with advanced solid tumors, multiple myeloma or B cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma with a genomic variant known (i) to be a target of an FDA-approved anti-cancer drug or (ii) to predict sensitivity to an FDA-approved anti-cancer drug.

Primary: Evaluate the effectiveness of lenalidomide as monotherapy or as combination treatment in MCL subjects who have relapsed or progressed after ibrutinub or refractory or intolerant to ibrutinib.
Secondary: Evaluate safety of lenalidomide in MCL subjects who have relapsed or progressed after ibrutinib treatment or are refractory or intolerant to ibrutinib.

I. To maintain a Childhood Cancer Registry for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer.

II. To utilize clinical and biological data to help determine eligibility or stratification, based on childhood cancer disease classification schemas, for potential enrollment of research subjects onto Children's Oncology Group (COG) therapeutic clinical trials.

III. To develop a well annotated childhood cancer biobank for current and future research through the collection of biospe
Kaplan, Joel Adam
To assess the safety and tolerability of the combination of polatuzumab vedotin with BR or BG when administered to patients with R/R FL or DLBCL
To identify the RP2D for polatuzumab vedotin given in combination with BR or with BG in patients with R/R FL or DLBCL
Ghosh, Nilanjan
To collect high quality specimens from patients with hematologic disorders and normal volunteers.
Future specimen analyses will be performed to determine the differences between sick and normal cells. Data used for these comparisons will include, but are not limited to: gene expression data, DNA, RNA, epigenetics, proteomics, metabolomics, and pathway analysys.
Avalos, Belinda Rene
To determine the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) and/or tolerable dose of escalating doses of clofarabine starting from 20mg/m2/day to 40mg/m2/day from Day 1 to Day 5 in combination with mitoxantrone 12mg/m2/day on Day 3-6 as reinduction therapy for children, adolescents and young adults with poor risk refractory/relapsed acute leukemia or high grade NHL. Oesterheld, Javier E
To safely reduce the burden of therapy in children, adolescents and young adults with mature B-NHL by reducing the number of intrathecal (IT) injections by the introduction of IT Liposomal Cytarabine (L-ARA-C, [Depocyt®]) and reducing the dose of anthracycline (doxorubicin) in good risk patients with the addition of rituximab to the FAB chemotherapy backbone (Immunochemotherapy). Oesterheld, Javier E
To evaluate the efficacy of ibrutinib in combination with lenalidomide with or without rituximab by assessing the overall response in subjects with relapsed or refractory non-GCB DLBCL. Ghosh, Nilanjan
