Scientific summary

My current translational research aims consist on understanding how dysfunctions in the regulation of signaling proteins and their complexes contribute to the development of the chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); a clonal CD5+B cell hemopathy that is biologically and clinically heterogeneous and remains incurable. My efforts are centered on the functional delineation of key adaptors and their complexes in the pathophysiology. Notably, they are focusing on studying the B cell receptor (BCR) signaling pathway in CLL cell survival and migration capacities in order to identify functional biomarkers and to establish the clinical relevance of the signaling cascade.  

Key words: Translational research, B cell, survival, migration, BCR signalling pathway, signalosome, phosphorylation, CLL, sub-population, soluble factors, functional biomarkers, clinical relevance
