Understanding functional heterogeneity in normal mammary gland and breast cancer

Shaheen Sikandar
Research Scientist

Abstract: Single cell technologies have allowed us to visualize the complexity of transcriptional states of a cell in a given tissue. Despite available information that normal stem cells and tumor-initiating cells are heterogeneous, the effect of this transcriptional heterogeneity on functional... Read More

Transcriptional Regulation of the Hemogenic Endothelium

Carlos Lizama
Postdoctoral Scholar

Hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) are generated during embryogenesis from specialized vascular beds termed hemogenic endothelium (HE), including the aortic endothelium of the aortic-gonado-mesonephros (AGM) region. In the aorta, pre-HSCs are organized in clusters attached to the vascular endothelium.... Read More
