We are investigating novel signalling pathways and the influence of redox-regulation in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). 

Our research team is exploring the phenomena of anergy (immunological unresponsiveness) upon exposure of microbial and self-antigens, as well as synergy (microenvironmental support) in the leukemogenesis of CLL.
