Research is carried out in the John Durkan Research Laboratories in the Trinity Translational Medicine Institute on the St James's Campus.
This research laboratory was funded by generous philanthropic support and is dedicated to the study of blood cancers. We have close research links to the Cancer Molecular Diagnostics, Cryobiology (stem cell) Laboratories and Cancer Clinical Trials Unit to form a coherent translational research environment for the investigation of haematological malignancies and related disorders on the campus of St James’s Hospital.
Our research is multidisciplinary in nature and encompasses the molecular profiling of blood cancers at diagnosis and in response to therapy; molecular analysis of diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers; dysregulation of epigenetic modifiers; the investigation of novel therapeutic strategies, including immunotherapy and small molecule therapeutics; and the molecular mediators of leukemic cell homing and trafficking.
