Leukemia: Research

Beyond COG clinical trials, we conduct our own research. Current projects include:  

  • Early diagnosis of invasive fungal disease  and fungal prophylaxis in children with acute lymphoblastic and myelogenous leukemia 
  • Identifying factors that predict risk for serious infection in children with leukemia  
  • Early phase clinical trials employing  new therapeutic agents to eradicate leukemia cells  
  • Laboratory research efforts at  UT Southwestern to understand  the biology of stem cells from  which leukemia begins
