Fundamental Research

Researchers in the UW-Madison Blood Research Program focus on elucidating genetic, epigenetic, biochemical and physiological mechanisms of normal and malignant blood cell development and function. These studies often traverse problems in stem and progenitor cell biology, gene expression, cell signaling, systems biology, and pathology mechanisms.  Mechanistic insights provide the logic to move toward the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for cancer and other blood disorders.
