MAJOR RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
The major objectives of this laboratory are:
- To characterize the developmental program of both normal and leukemic
human stem cells using molecular and cellular approaches.
- To characterize the human SCID-repopulating cells from human bone
marrow, cord blood, and cytokine mobilized peripheral blood with the
goal of establishing a quantitative in vivo assay for human stem cells.
- Purification of human stem cells.
- To create animal models for human genetic diseases, such as thalassemia.
- To characterize leukemia stem cells and the development of animal
models for human leukemias.
