Located in the Cancer and Genetics Research Center, our lab is equipped with all the necessary resources and tools needed to investigate the mechanisms of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS), using biochemical techniques, cell culture, and mouse models.
Using cell-line and mouse models of Leukemia, we have the facilities needed to develop and study models that allow us better to understand the underlying mechanisms of AML and MDS and work towards more effective therapies.
Perhaps just as important as the reagents themselves, our lab is full of expertise on standard molecular biology and biochemistry protocols, including Viral Transduction, Western Blot, qPCR, Cloning, Genotyping, Cell Growth Analysis, and other biochemical technologies. The lab is equipped with machines for all the above molecular biology analyses.
Equipped with machinery ranging from standard RT-PCR machines to advanced hematology system analyzers, our lab is home to the tools needed to pursue topics on the frontiers of hematology and oncology research.
