Understanding what drives leukemia growth and thriving is crucial to fight these diseases. Despite the recent advances in understanding the pathophysiology of several myeloid malignancies, treatment options remain highly limited and are not curative for most of these patients.

Our main goal is to uncover disease biology and use such discoveries to design novel, therapeutic regiments that maximize treatment efficacy while minimize the severe side effects associated with the standard chemotherapy.

In line with this, two independent research avenues are in place in the Lab to tackle these aggressive malignancies:

  1. Cross-talk between Leukemic cells and bone marrow microenvironment
  2. Linking the circadian molecular clock to myeloid leukemogenesis
