Abstract

We want to dissect the machinery underlying how each and every individual stem and progenitor cell generates the different blood cell types. We have at our disposal the latest molecular and computational technologies to do this. Knowledge gained from this project could be used for tissue engineering to make blood cells on demand for patients with immune deficiency, or alternatively to treat leukaemia patients where blood cells are overproduced.
