Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is the single most common form of childhood cancer. Even though ALL can be successfully treated with chemotherapy, there remains a significant proportion of children and young adults who stop responding to treatment. Dr Marc Mansour and his team have identified a missing gene that could hold the key to targeting resistance and developing new, lifesaving treatments for this high-risk group.
