Ask Lisa Nguyen what gets her blood racing, and her answer will be hematopoietic stem cells, or HSCs. She’ll be presenting about HSCs at the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) Annual Meeting in Boston in June 2017. To […]

The price of progress is not only the energy and talent of stem cell scientists, but also the research dollars that support their discoveries. In recent months, faculty members have secured numerous grants to support stem cell-based approaches to study […]
In a recent issue of Nature, Philipp S. Hoppe and colleagues present their work on how blood-forming cells, called hematopoietic progenitors, commit to becoming particular blood cell types. Previously, scientists thought that these choices were determined by random changes in […]
In an interview with Cell Stem Cell, Drs. Rong Lu, Alvaro Rada-Iglesias, and Jennifer Phillips-Cremins share a behind-the-scenes look at what it took for them to set up their labs and eventually publish their group’s first paper. They share advice, […]
Few researchers have studied how hematopoietic stem cells respond to infection—even though these are the stem cells that give rise to the full battery of specialized immune cells, such as T cells and B cells. Adnan Chowdhury is venturing into […]
In a recent issue of Nature, Fan Zhou, Bing Liu and colleagues present their work on tracing the developmental origin of blood stem cells, also known as hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), in mice. Interestingly, grafts of single HSC precursor cells […]
