About the Project
Haematopoiesis is a complex, finely-tuned process that produces trillions of new blood cells daily. Adult haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are responsible for the lifelong maintenance of this system, making it essential to understand their biology. The balance between mature cell production and HSC maintenance is essential for homeostasis and gets disrupted in ageing (too few stem cells) and cancer (too many immature cells). This project focuses on trying to track blood stem cells as they drive cancers using mouse models, human patient samples and cutting edge single cell technologies.
