Research Interests:
The major focus is on research projects directed at understanding the aggressive nature of childhood cancers such as neuroblastoma and leukaemia. These involve cellular and molecular biological experiments aimed at investigating the role of members of the multidrug transporter gene family in determining clinical outcome of the childhood cancer neuroblastoma and other malignancies. Other aspects include studies into the mechanism of relapse in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia...
