Essential Functions

Hematopoietic and vascular development, regeneration, and disease - Washington University School of Medicine

A postdoctoral research associate position is available to study the following areas: 1) Hematopoietic and vascular development and regeneration. 2) Hematopoietic stem cell fate in chronic inflammation. 3) The crosstalk between tumor angiogenesis and tumor immunity.

We also utilize various tumor models to study changes occurring in hematopoietic stem cells and the crosstalk between endothelial cells and tumor immunity. We hope to apply the findings to regenerative medicine and therapeutic interventions for hematopoietic and vascular diseases.
