Regulation of Bcl2 and p53 networks in Multiple Myeloma and Mantle Cell Lymphoma

Research Objectives and Themes

We are working on identifying vulnerabilities that are consequent to the adaptation of cancer cells to survival/resistance and resistance within their ecosystem. At the molecular level, we are focusing on major pathways involved in resistance/escape of cancer cells to deaths, such as p53 pathway and BCL2 network.

“Our integration into the Calym consortium in 2015 allowed us to significantly increase our interactions with French teams specialized in the field of haemato-oncology and more particularly B Lymphomas. This Carnot network offers great visibility and numerous opportunities, both at the technological and scientific levels but also at the level of research partnership and valorisation. ”
