Certain genetic disorders cause widespread disease in the body, but the principle reason for illness and death in early childhood is failure of the blood system.  We would like to study these genetic blood disorders by “turning back the clock” – using new technology in stem cell biology to take skin cells from patients with genetic blood disorders and return them to an embryonic-like state, wherein they regain the ability to form any type of cell in the body. … Read more about Suneet Agarwal, MD, PhD

The Armstrong laboratory is focused on the mechanisms of cancer development with a focus on leukemia. One major interest in the lab is the relationship between leukemia, normal hematopoietic stem cells and the various hematopoietic cells of origin of leukemia. The lab is also studying the role of histone modifications and chromosome Read more about Scott Armstrong, MD, PhD

Craft Lab research
Our research focuses on both developmental biology and translational medicine, and involves the use of pluripotent stem cells to understand how musculoskeletal lineages, primarily articular chondrocytes and cartilage tissues, are specified during embryonic development and how mature cells and … Read more about April M.

George Q. Daley, M.D., Ph.D, seeks to translate insights in stem cell biology into improved therapies for genetic and malignant diseases. Important research contributions from his laboratory include the creation of customized stem cells to treat genetic immune deficiency in a mouse model (together with Rudolf Jaenisch), the differentiation of germ cells from embryonic stem cells (cited as a “Top Ten Breakthrough” by Science magazine in 2003), and the generation of disease-specific pluripotent stem cells by direct reprogramming of human fibroblasts (cited in the “Breakthrough of the Year” issue of Science magazine in 2008).  … Read more about George Q.
