Study of acute pediatric myeloid leukemia and development of disease models.
Acute myeloid leukemia is a rare disease that is becoming the leading cause of death in children with leukemia, who are treated with drugs that are used in adults and to which they do not respond adequately. Our goal is to develop new cellular and bioinformatic tools to find more effective and specific treatments for leukemia in children.
In collaboration with Dr. Pedro Carmona Sáez, responsible for the GENYO bioinformatics unit, we want to integrate through bioinformatics analysis the genomic, functional and clinical information that we collect in the project and the one that is available in public databases, with the In order to identify the key signaling pathways in the pathophysiology of the disease, as well as to predict molecules with possible therapeutic effects
