“Characterization of Mutations in Human Acute Myeloid Leukemia in Octogenerians”

Raymond’s research focuses on understanding the differences in the presentation of Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) between patients greater than 80 years of age and those who are younger. He aims to perform data analysis on clinical datasets to compare the patterns of mutations among various age groups of patients. The data that Raymond generates will contribute to the development of better therapeutic treatment strategies for elderly patients with AML.
