About us:

We have reported the role of the triphosphohydrolase SAMHD1 as a determinant of chemoresistance in acute myeloid leukemia (Nat. Med. 23(2):250-255 (2017); Nat. Commun. 10(1):3475 (2019); Commun. Biol. 3(1):324 (2020)). We have recently identified small molecule inhibitors of SAMHD1 that chemosensitize leukemic blasts and highly malignant solid tumors to specific nucleoside analogs. We employ state-of-the art molecular, biochemical and immunological approaches to explore the activity of these inhibitors in cell lines, primary cells, organotypic tumor cultures and small animal models.  

We are looking for you:
