Finding boosts target hopes for aggressive blood cancers

2016 Mammalian Functional Genetics Laboratory group
L- R: Dr Katharina Haigh, Mr John Drummond, Mr Mina Takawy,

Dr Catherine Carmichael, Assoc Prof Jody Haigh, Dr Maggie Costa,
Absent: Dr Thao Nguyen
by Anne Crawford 

In September last year this blog reported on some promising findings into ZEB2, a protein implicated in certain aggressive leukaemias, made by Australian Centre for Blood Diseases (ACBD) researcher, Associate Professor Jody Haigh as part of an international collaboration.

Associate Professor Haigh’s work has since been bolstered by the revelation of a novel partner of ZEB2. Combined, they may form a possible therapeutic target that could potentially have greater efficacy than targeting ZEB2 alone.
