Childhood Leukaemia Research Group

Professor Christina Halsey leads the Childhood Leukaemia research group, based in the School of Cancer Sciences, University of Glasgow, where she investigates mechanisms of central nervous system disease in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and ways to reduce treatment related toxicity in this condition.

Despite great advances in the treatment of paediatric ALL, disease in the central nervous system (CNS) remains challenging.  A better understanding of the mechanisms of CNS engraftment is a necessary pre-requisite for diagnostic and therapeutic advances.  Find out more about the Halsey Lab, our research and team here
