The development of a blood cancer requires the imbalance of multiple genes in a blood cell. This project aims to explore which genes interact to produce blood cancer, and the specific roles these genes have in cancer and normal blood development.

Identification of the genes and pathways involved in blood cancer development may allow new or better directed therapies against blood cancers.
