Project main description:

Cancer initiating cells acquire stem cell characteristics and self renew within a supportive environment that helps maintain and propagate malignant tumours. Identifying the normal hierarchy of gene regulation within blood stem cells and designing therapies that target key transcription factors (proteins that control other genes) that are over expressed in cancer stem cells is the ultimate goal.
