Paralkar Lab, ribosome biogenesis, ribosome hematopoiesis, leukemia, transcription, epigenetics

Grant from Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute

The Paralkar Lab is awarded a Pilot Research Grant by the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute to perform a CRISPR tiling mutagenesis screen to dissect ribosome biogenesis regulation in leukemia. This grant is in collaboration with the laboratory of Junwei Shi, Department of Cancer Biology, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.
