In our latest review article, we provide a comprehensive overview of the molecular basis of step-wise leukemogenesis in Down syndrome-associated myeloid leukemia and transient abnormal myelopoiesis.
We congratulate Dr. rer. nat. Michelle Ng on an excellent virtual PhD defense. Following this, she graduated from the HBRS Molecular Medicine PhD program with highest honours.
Many congratulations to Dr. rer. nat. Dorit Schneider, who overcame pandemic-related challenges and successfully defended her PhD! She completed the Molecular Medicine program with a magna cum laude.
This review summarizes recent research on RBPs with roles in acute leukemias, focusing on the proteins' functional domains, the pathways they affect, and clinical aspects associated with their dysregulation.
Prof. Klusmann was awarded this year's Johann Georg Zimmermann Prize, which recognizes outstanding young investigators for their contribution to the fight against cancer.
Our latest publication reports on the characterization of HOXA10-AS, a novel stem cell-specific lncRNA that is required for the maintenance of MLL-rearranged acute myeloid leukemias.
Our congratulations to Maurice, who won this year's Cord-Michael Becker Prize for his outstanding PhD work in the field of Molecular Medicine. This is a highly prestigious national award!
At this year's ISEH meeting in Brisbane, Australia, Dorit won both a travel award as well as a Young Investigator Prize for her short talk on EZH2 loss and co-operating mutations. We are so proud!
Our congratulations to Dirk Heckl, who has now officially joined the faculty of the Universitätsklinikum Halle as professor of Experimental Pediatrics, after more than a year apart.
Two of our papers went online this week! 1) Identification and validation of molecular events that drive progression from transient abnormal myelopoiesis to full-blown Down syndrome myeloid leukemia.
