Developing a Humanized Mouse Model of Leukemia

"We aim to create a cutting-edge platform whereby biobanked bone marrow samples from paediatric leukemia patients can be engrafted in immunodeficient mice to facilitate growth of an immune system identical to the patient's...The outcomes of this project will establish a platform that bridges a critical translational gap between studies in pure mouse models and man."
