The role of MSCs in leukemic cell survival

Phone 088 97 25 071

Upon co-culturing of BCP-ALL cells with MSCs, the expression levels of IFN-related genes change in the MSCs. My project focusses on determining the effect of these genes on leukemic cell survival. Additionally, my project involves differentiating MSCs into adipocytes and osteocytes. After coculturing BCP-ALL cells with these differentiated MSCs, leukemic cell survival and chemokine/cytokine profiles will be determined.
