Brief description The cells responsible for producing blood are called hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). Our research is focused on the genes that control HSC growth and development. We have discovered that a gene known to cause cancer, Erg, plays a critical role in regulating this process. This Project will tease apart the mechanism by which it does so, provide insights into how Erg can trigger cancer, and help us understand the molecular network of regulators that control blood cell production.
