My study is focusing on the genetic alterations in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. During my post-Dr training in St. Jude children's Research Hospital, I learned how to use the techniques of next-generation sequencing (NGS) to explore the targetable chromosomal translocations in BCR-ABL1 like ALL. I am doing re-classifications of childhood ALL based upon these findings in Taiwan. The long-term goal is to improve the treatment outcomes of childhood ALL in Taiwan.
