MondoA PEs

Within a research project funded also by Cura Placida, a new very promising target structure - called MondoA - has been identified for leukemia therapy.  This target structure is essential and specific in the metabolism of cancer cells.  The discovery will make it possible to target this "Achilles' heel" of cancer cells with drugs, thereby combating them while sparing healthy tissue.  The research was conducted at the TUM Research Centre for Children with Cancer under the direction of Professor Stefan Burdach in collaboration with Poul HB Sorensen, MD, PHD, Johal Chair in Childhood Cancer Research, Distinguished Scientist, British Columbia Cancer Research Centre, and published in a highly recognized medical journal.
