Personal profile

Public Profile

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) is an extremely heterogeneous disease with subtypes of patients exhibiting a diverse range of genetic mutations. Certain subtypes of ALL can be treated with drugs already in clinical use. Laura undertook her Fulbright fellowship (2016-2017) at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee where she learned mouse models of high-risk ALL. She also investigated the functional significance of mutations to the transcription factor MYB, which have recently been identified in T-ALL patients. Future work will expand on this utilizing xenograft and transgenic mouse models, with particular focus on T-ALL. This project aims to 1) model mechanisms of drug resistance and 2) develop models for newly discovered mutations in order to aid the development of novel targeted and/or combination therapeutic approaches. Ultimately, results will inform clinical practice, impacting significantly on response to therapy and overall survival of adults and children with high-risk ALL.
