Molecular diagnostics of hematologic malignancies

The Valk Lab focuses on the molecular analyses of various hematologic malignancies, mainly acute myeloid and lymphoblastic leukemias. By applying various genome-wide molecular technologies the Valk Lab wants to unravel the great molecular heterogeneity in these diseases. Besides the research activities the Valk Lab includes the routine molecular diagnostic laboratory, which plays an essential role in current diagnostic workup, and the establishment of prognosis, of patients with acute leukemias and myelo-proliferative diseases.

Our ultimate goal is to reveal novel mechanisms in leukemogenesis in acute leukemia subtypes and improve risk-stratification for patients with acute leukemia.
