The lab is focused on understanding the complex biology of this deadly blood cancer to develop novel therapeutic approaches as well as to promote response to existing chemotherapy. Specifically, we have taken a comprehensive approach to decipher altered cellular responses of leukemic cells using large-scale screening strategies in pre-clinical models.
