H12O-CNIO Haematological Malignacies Clinical Research Unit

Head of Unit:  Joaquín Martínez
Overview

The Haematological Malignancies Clinical Research Unit focuses on 3 main objectives:

  • Molecular research of haematological cancer: the study of cancerinduced changes at the proteomic and genomic levels. We aim to: i) find new genomic and proteomic biomarkers for a better diagnosis of these haematological diseases; ii) identify new molecular alterations as predictors of response to treatment, e.g. to study minimal residual disease; and iii) study immune mechanisms of cancer control, with a special focus on NK cells.
  • In vitro research: i) to establish the effects of new anticancer molecules in in vitro models of the disease; ii) to determine the mechanisms of resistance to anticancer drugs.
  • Clinical research: to translate preclinical findings to the patients through a phase I clinical trials unit.
