Julia is using a biochemical strategy to discover new proteins that are associated with a mutated protein, NPM1, specific to human leukemias. Identification of a novel pathway could lead to improvements in treatment for patients with NPM1 mutated leukemia.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 24, 2016:
