Role of NADPH oxidases (NOX), which generate reactive oxygen species (ROS), in the mutation independent resistance to tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). The aim of the project is to use NOX inhibitors to prevent the emergence of TKI resistance in AML and CML and/or re-sensitize resistant cells to TKI treatment.

About TAP Program: “What I like most about being a TAP student is that the program puts the needs of the students first. Students choose what courses are best for them and their project and to take an on or off- topic candidacy.”
