Acute myeloid leukaemia is the second most common form of childhood leukaemia, with 100 children diagnosed every year in the UK. Around a third of these young patients cannot be saved with existing treatments. Dr Mussai is taking forward a new approach to treatment that could offer new hope to children with this devastating disease.
We are grateful to the Aila Coull Foundation for providing the funding to support this project.
