Familial Myeloid Leukemia

I recently saw a 31 year old patient with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML), whose mother recently developed  Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML, M4 with INV16), at 59 years of age. A sister of the CML patient is apparently healthy. DNA is
available from the 2 patients as well as the sister.

I would like to contact research groups interested in studying this cluster of familial myeloid leukemia, or with similar experiences.
