AboutHi! My name is Vivek Nalluri and my project is on Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia within children. The field of oncology and working with kids are both areas of interest for me and I decided to combine them through my research project.

The Association Between Genes in Ethnic Cohorts and Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Started Mar. 16, 2022
Abstract or project description
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a blood cancer which commonly affects children and progresses rapidly. While comparative analyses have been performed between ALL survival rates of children of various races, there remains a lack of knowledge about patterns of commonly expressed genes within different ethnic cohorts who have ALL. Thus, it is critical to identify common genes that are expressed in various ethnic youth cohorts affect by ALL to understand how these genes may be targeted in future ALL therapies.
