Hematopoiesis and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology : NIDDK

Hematopoiesis and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology

Specific areas include:

  • Hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell phenotypes.
  • Regulation of gene expression during hematopoiesis.
  • Regulatory molecules and cytokines that influence stem and progenitor cell survival, proliferation, and maturation.
  • Mechanisms of hematopoietic cell cycle control and lineage commitment.
  • Comparative studies of hematopoiesis across species.
  • Ontogeny of hematopoietic tissue development.
  • Hematopoietic stem cell plasticity in mesenchymal tissue development.
  • Hematopoietic stem cells and progenitors as vehicles for gene therapy.
  • Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and the development of techniques for establishing stable hematopoietic chimeras in order to treat heritable blood diseases.
