Epigenetic therapies for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia

Project Description

This project aims to identify new treatments for people with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). AML is a disease that can be driven by changes in gene expression through a process called epigenetics. We aim to utilise pre-clinical models of human AML to test new agents that reverse the epigenetic changes that occur in this disease. Ultimately we aim to introduce these new treatment regimens into the clinic.
