One of the interests of the Niewiesk laboratory is the use of measles vaccine virus as oncolytic therapy to cure T cell leukemias. We use the mouse model of adult T cell leukemia to study the interaction between tumor cells, microenviroment and virus. One aspect of this research is how to use genetically improved viruses to combat leukemia and how to combine viral oncolytic therapy with other conventional or experimental therapies.
