Identification of new therapeutic targets in plasma cells and multiple myeloma

Years funded

This project will characterise 3 newly identified molecules that are highly expressed on both normal and malignant plasma cells. We will study their normal biology and will attempt to target them with monoclonal antibodies as a step towards new therapies for multiple myeloma and autoimmune diseases.
