Research Grant Awarded at the Beat Leukemia Ball

Leukemia Texas is proud to announce that Dr. Kapil Bhalla, MD and Dr. Courtney DiNardo, MD, MSCE of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center are the recipients of the 2019 Leukemia Texas Research Grant Award for $100,000.00.

Their innovative work towards targeted therapies for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) expressing somatic or germline mutant RUNX1 gene will establish improved treatment methods for AML patients with this genetic alteration. Ultimately, their work will lead to better methodologies to predict patients at risk for developing AML, and lead to targeted treatments for patients developing AML.
