Dr. Conneely's research focuses on better understanding the mechanism behind certain types of leukemia, specifically acute myeloid leukemia (AML). She is trying to identify protein interactions that either help or prevent AML cells from dividing and driving disease. The overall goal is to identify potential new pathways that can be targeted for therapies in the future to improve outcomes for patients with AML.
