Title: Novel, targeted therapy of B-cell malignancies with poor prognosis

Date: 15th January 2021 (Friday)

Time: 12:00 pm (Central European Time)

Host: prof. Marta B. Wiśniewska

Virtual seminar:



B cell malignancies are a heterogeneous group of diseases derived from B cell precursors at various stages of B cell development and from mature B cells. We have established a multidisciplinary consortium to study novel therapeutic options for patients with B cell malignancies at preclinical stage. During the talk I will present results of our ongoing projects regarding novel therapeutic options that we develop against poorly-treated, high-risk subtypes of B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. They include targeting enzymes involved in redox metabolism, the combination treatment composed of thioredoxin inhibitors and venetoclax, as well as novel immunotherapeutic options. I will also explain our in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo models, highlighting the crucial role of the close collaboration of our research team with clinicians.

Guide for students

The UW Digital Competence Centre UW (CKC), a unit experienced in providing remote education using digital technologies, prepared a guide to support students.

The Students’ Guide to distance learning is an e-course on the Kampus platform. It aims to support students during their online studies in the 2020-2021 semester, e.g. searching for courses.

It covers a variety of topics, including the information on:

  • Tools that help participate in classes,
  • Forms of distance learning (asynchronous and synchronous),
  • Available platforms,
  • Course types and their structure,
  • Taking exams,
  • Obtaining credits,
  • Technical support.
