Priya’s second first-author paper is out in Cancer Epidemiology, Biology & Prevention. This paper furthers our collaboration with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and begins our collaboration with Texas Children’s Hospital. The gene and network analyses presented uncover loci associated with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) that are missed by GWA studies. The paper also reports that ALL-associated loci do not appear to interact directly with each other to influence ALL risk, and instead appear to influence leukemogenesis through multiple, complex pathways.
Congratulations to all the authors!
