Current Research and Scholarly Interests Whilst cancer is first a disease of unregulated cell proliferation, a small proportion of cells within a tumour are paradoxically in a relative state of quiescence. These chemotherapy-resistant cells are the likely culprits responsible for relapse but the signalling events that control this state are unknown. By studying purified populations of cancer stem cells derived from patients with acute myeloid leukemia my work is focused on defining novel targets for future therapy.
