Title: Single cell RNA sequencing reveals a highly heterogeneous immune cell landscape in human neuroblastoma

Summary: We provide a high-resolution single-cell immune landscape of human neuroblastoma where we have discovered 26 different immune cell subtypes which have multiple immune-to-immune and immune-to-stroma/tumor cell interactions, which can be exploited as possible novel therapeutic targets.

Title: Enhancing chemotherapy treatment for AML

Summary: Addition of hydroxyurea improves the efficacy of chemotherapy agents commonly used to treat relapsed AML, opening up the possibility for more effective treatment combinations for a patient group with a historically poor prognosis.
