Laboratory shelves with supplies and equipment

Research focuses on hematopoiesis, the regenerative process in which a small pool of undifferentiated hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) proliferate and differentiate into all of the different types of cells found in the peripheral blood. As the progeny of HSC multiply, they become restricted to specific hematopoietic lineages, eventually becoming committed to maturing into one single type of cell that then circulates in the blood. Perturbations of this process cause a variety of disorders ranging from hematologic malignancy to anemia.
