Jonathan Hoggatt, PhD | MGH

Senior Investigator | Assistant Professor of Medicine

The Hoggatt laboratory is broadly interested in the stem cell niche regulatory mechanisms that govern tissue regeneration, and we have a specific interest in translational science for bone marrow transplantation and other treatments. Our laboratory identified a unique “highly engraftable” hematopoietic stem cell that we are currently investigating which has applications for further probing of stem cell niche biology, and clinical applications in transplantation, gene therapy, and other fields. We have also recently discovered a method to prevent hair graying following DNA damage, with not only potential to translate to the clinic, but gives a strong tool to study cancer resistance mechanisms.
