Professor for Regeneration in Hematopoiesis
We aim at understanding the regulation of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) function to modulate and improve therapeutic approaches in the future. Fundamental unresolved questions that we work on include: How is hematopoiesis controlled on the cellular and molecular level? What keeps a stem cell a stem cell? What invites a stem cell to differentiate? What is the role of growth factors in lineage choice?
To answer these questions we focus our research on:
• Analysis of HSC function - clonal level, extrinsic and intrinsic regulation
• Improving mouse recipients for the study of human and mouse HSCs
• Analysis of human leukemic stem cells - characterization and regulation
In the role of Faculty Member, Claudia Waskow contributes recommendations and reviews to the Leukocyte Development Section in the Immunology Faculty, writing brief accessible comments to summarize the value of the articles and adding rating score.
The Faculty comprises Heads of Faculty, Heads of Section, Faculty Members and Associate Faculty Members, as well as an International Advisory Board.
