Waskow Research Group

Current Projects

Our lab focuses on HSCs and hematopoiesis in mice and humans and we use state-of-the art techniques to understand the effect of cell physiological processes on stem and progenitor cell function. We further have a focus on developing optimized tools to address our questions in vivo.

Fundamental unresolved questions that we work on include:

  • How is hematopoiesis controlled on the molecular level?
  • What keeps a stem cell a stem cell? What invites a stem cell to differentiate?
  • What is the role of growth factors in lineage choice?
  • How does aging impact hematopoisis and how does hematopoiesis impact aging?
