Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) programming in blood stem cells

October 15, 2020

My lab focuses on the hypoxia inducible factor (HIF), and deciphering the molecular mechanisms which determine its context-dependent transcriptional function and resulting phenotypes in normal and pre-leukaemia blood stem cells. HIF function has been demonstrated as central to these processes, however its effects are very context-dependent. Our lab applies fate-choice decisions in long term HSCs as a model to decipher the mechanisms which dictate HIF function, to investigate how we can direct the power of this master regulator into a force for good in pre-leukaemic disease.
