Research topic and relevance

Julie Lessard and her team attempt to elucidate the role of a new family of genes in the self-renewal, proliferation and differentiation of normal and leukemic hematopoietic stem cells. Their work suggests that therapies specifically directed against leukemia stem cells would be more effective in eradicating the tumor.
