Impact of the inflamed bone marrow niche on the progression of Myeloproliferative Neoplasia and marrow fibrosis
Fibrosis & Bone Marrow Niche; Immunotherapy
We recognize the mutations that target certain genes (Jak2, Tets, Mpl, or Asxl) and causes inflammation. We don't know how inflammation contributes to disease progression. We also don't know the causes that lead to inflammation. This project will investigate these causes and hopefully this will lead to ways to counteract disease progression.
