Identifying molecular regulators of haematopoietic stem cell development
Grant number: DE120100782 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015
Blood stem cells are capable of making all types of mature blood cell whilst making new copies of themselves. These properties are essential for the life-long supply of blood and make stem cells ideal for therapeutic use. By studying embryos, this project will identify genes that control the production and expansion of blood-forming stem cells.
