The cure rates for leukaemia have increased over the past 20 years, but we still have a lot of work to do. This project will increase our understanding of the genetic changes underlying one form of the disease. The aim is to produce results that lead to the development of new drugs that will successfully treat childhood leukaemia.
Our funding will allow doctors to take a close look at the genetic factors that can lead to leukaemia in young people. They’ll then be ready to offer their knowledge in the development of new drugs.
