Available: 11/18/19, Expires: 11/20/25

The goal of our laboratory is to understand how human variation impacts the process of blood and immune cell production or hematopoiesis. We study how variation impacts hematopoiesis in health and in disease states. We have had numerous PhD and MD students perform research in our laboratory. We have a range of projects, including those involving experimental, computational, or a combination of approaches.

Available: 04/05/22, Expires: 06/01/25

Genetic studies of human hematopoiesis or blood cell production. We utilize studies of rare and common inherited variation that impacts healthy blood cell production and causes diseases. We are also starting to explore how such variation may predispose to blood cancers.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
