Dr. Tan studies transcriptional regulation during normal development and disease. This involves the interplay of multiple transcription and epigenetic factors in a 3D chromosomal environment. Using experimental genomics and computational modeling, Dr. Tan investigates transcriptional regulatory networks underlying embryonic hematopoiesis, T cell differentiation, and pediatric leukemia.
Dr. Thom uses computational and cellular approaches to understand genetic determinants of hematopoiesis. Dr. Thom aims to harness related insights to improve in vitro blood cell production from induced pluripotent stem cells.
Dr. Warren studies normal and aberrant hematopoiesis, with a special interest in granulopoiesis. Her research aims to understand the pathogenesis of severe congenital neutropenia and its risk for malignant transformation. She has a clinical interest in neutropenia syndromes including clinical trials.
Dr. Felix uses molecular, biochemical, cellular and in vivo methods to investigate the pathobiology of leukemias with KMT2A (MLL) translocations. Leukemias with these translocations affect infants and young children or occur as a complication of type II topoisomerase (TOP2) poison chemotherapies used for anti-cancer treatment. She aims to develop better treatment and prevention approaches for these leukemias, which have a poor prognosis.
Dr. Olson aims to improve diagnostics and treatment of bone marrow failure (BMF) syndromes, and to improve clinical hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) outcomes. He conducts clinical trials of HSCT for non-malignant hematologic diseases. His laboratory explores both basic and translational research focused on genomics of BMF and the impact of BMF on hematopoietic niche function during HSCT.
Stephanie Hurwitz, MD, PhD, is a research fellow focused on improving understanding of the molecular biogenesis and functions of extracellular vesicles in physiologic and regenerative hematopoietic stem cell biology.
Suying Liu leads the research project into the clonal restraints of hematopoiesis in an inherited bone marrow failure syndrome, Fanconi Anemia, to promote better understanding and treatment of pediatric hematological disorders.
