Claudia Lengerke and collaborators discovered how Leukaemia Stem Cells develop resistance against immune cells and suggest novel treatment strategies for patients

Natural killer cells (red) attack ordinary leukaemia cells (green), but not leukaemia stem cells (blue).

The Lengerke Lab elucidated how Leukaemia Stem Cells evade the attack by Natural Killer cells and suggest novel strategies for therapy. Their findings have recently been published in Nature.
