Professor Richard Bryan Lock

Biography

Research Interests:
In the field of cancer the major focus is in defining molecular mechanisms of drug resistance in relapsed childhood leukaemia. New experimental models of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia have been developed that will be used to delineate mechanisms of programmed cell death (apoptosis) and investigate novel biological characteristics of the disease. In addition, these experimental models will be used to test novel...view more

Research Interests:
In the field of cancer the major focus is in defining molecular mechanisms of drug resistance in relapsed childhood leukaemia. New experimental models of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia have been developed that will be used to delineate mechanisms of programmed cell death (apoptosis) and investigate novel biological characteristics of the disease. In addition, these experimental models will be used to test novel therapeutic agents/strategies for management of the high-risk or relapsed patient.
