Shannon Maude Research Program

Led by Shannon L. Maude, MD, PhD, researchers in the Maude Research Program are focused on developing and clinically evaluating new immunotherapies and targeted cancer therapies to treat children with high-risk and relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The long-term goal of the work conducted in this research program is to identify new pediatric ALL treatments that are more effective, less toxic and exhibit fewer side effect than existing cancer therapies.
