Research Interests: 

Among the cells in hematopoietic hierarchy, hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) is the only cell type that can self-renew and generate lifelong supply of all the mature blood cells that maintain the whole hematopoietic system. Understanding of the mechanisms regulating self-renewal, differentiation of HSC is crucial for HSC maintenance, expansion and regeneration. Using in vitro differentiation and animal models, our lab focus on the regulation of hematopoiesis during stress and pathological conditions with emphasis on the role of transcription factors. Besides, the interaction between HSCs and their niches(microenvironment) is also investigated with animal models of hematopoietic malignancies.
