CONECT-AML (COllaborative NEtwork on research for Children and Teenagers with Acute Myeloid Leukemia)is a collaborative network of several teams of researchers, medical biologists and pediatric hematologists, distributed throughout metropolitan France, working on acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in children and adolescents.

This national network aims to accelerate research and to improve the management of these young patients with AML.

This project is carried out by the National Cancer Institute (INCa), , the League against Cancer and the ARC Foundation as part of the Integrated Research Action Program (PAIR) in pediatric oncology (InCa-ARC-LIGUE_11905). It is also supported by the association Laurette Fugain, by the Association for research in Pediatric Hematological Diseases of the Child (ARMHE) and the association Les 111 des arts.

The “Société Française de lutte contre les Cancers et les leucémies aigues de l’Enfant et de l’adolescent” (SFCE) is associated at CONECT-AML.

It is coordinated by Pr Arnaud Petit with the support of Pr Guy Leverger (Hôpital Trousseau, APHP ; Sorbonne Université).
