Research Projects:

Multiple Myeloma (MM) is a currently incurable rare malignant plasma cell disease, which invariably relapses despite therapy. The objective of our project (OVER-MYR) is to understand the causes of drug resistance and relapse, develop novel strategies to overcome these, provide proof of principal for phase I/II trial, and thus impact on MM-patients survival. Currently-used drugs target both MM cells (MMC) and cells of the bone marrow (BM) microenvironment or niche that are critical for supporting MMC survival, proliferation and growth.
