Breakthrough in the therapeutic options for acute myeloid leukemia
As a result of our collaboration with the research groups or Richard Moriggl (Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Cancer Research and University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna, Austria) and Patrick Gunning (University of Toronto, Canada), we have recently published a research paper in the Nature-group journal Leukemia, describing a new, promising lead compound for the inhibition of the STAT5 protein. More details are available in Hungarian on the website of the National Research, Development and Innovation Office of Hungary.

Brain Research Days
Our group was represented by Ádám Kelemen, Dóra Judit Kiss, Levente Mihalovits and Zoltán Orgován on the Brain Research Days, an educational/scientific-disseminatory forum organized on March 12-13 at the Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest.

Visiting researcher
We are happy to welcome David Hamilton from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, who will work on the synthesis and testing of fragment-sized covalent inhibitors.

Best presentation by a young scientist award
Dávid Bajusz was awarded at the 11th Winter Symposium on Chemometrics (held between February 26 - March 02 in St Petersburg, Russia) for the best presentation given by a young researcher, while his coauthor, Anita Rácz has received a Best poster prize. As their reward, the two young researchers will participate in the Copenhagen School of Chemometrics 2018.

New colleague
It is our pleasure to welcome András Németh, who will work on synthetic preparative chemistry.
