Thesis Title
In vivo imaging of the dynamic interactions of acute leukaemias with the bone marrow microenvironment
It has been hypothesized that haematopoietic stem cells (HSC) residing in the bone marrow (BM) receive survival and differentiation signals from a range of cell types including osteoblasts and endothelial cells. In parallel,...
