Targeting Epigenetic Enzymes In Core Binding Factor Aml

Grant number: 1123445 | Funding period: 2017 - 2019



Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a devastating disease and there are ~900 new cases diagnosed annually in Australia. A subset of AML, called core binding factor (CBF) AML is more responsive to conventional chemotherapies than other AMLs however patients still relapse indicating a need for new therapies. We will use preclinical models of CBF AML to identify the proteins and pathways that these leukemias are “addicted” to in order to develop new treatment options for these patients.
