David Teachey Laboratory

Led by David Teachey, MD, this research program focuses on two areas: acute lymphoblastic leukemia and immune dysregulation. The first area of interest centers on the development and translation of novel therapies for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The lab targets a number of signaling pathways in ALL and also develops and tests novel immunotherapies. The lab often uses xenograft models to study the efficacy of agents and mechanism of action of those agents directly on leukemia cells obtained from children.
