This project aims at identifying predictive markers of ex vivo drug sensitivity in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). We have molecularly profiled over 100 AML tumours so far, each tested ex vivo against 73 selected drugs (150 new profiled tumours will be available to this project in the next two years). The successful candidate will investigate the application of a range of machine learning methods to predict which drugs are most effective for a given AML tumour exploiting in-house and public data resources.
