David StachuraDepartment of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA F1000 Associate Faculty Member (since 20 September 2010)
David Stachura is an Associate Faculty Member who works with Faculty Member David Traver to recommend the scientific literature in their field.CURRENT POSITION:
EDUCATION AND BACKGROUND:
David graduated in 2000 from Lehigh University with a B. in Molecular Biology. He then completed his PhD at the University of Pennsylvania in 2006 with Dr. Mitchell Weiss. His research was focused on murine hematopoietic development. Specifically, David studied lineage commitment and specification by the hematopoietic transcription factor GATA-1. His research led to the discovery that GATA-1 is essential for the differentiation of megakaryocyte erythroid precursors (MEPs), and that dysregulation at this developmental stage has a role in leukemogenesis. This research was supported by an NIH cardiology training grant.
David joined the Traver lab in April 2006, and is currently supported by a Cancer Research Prevention Foundation fellowship award to study leukemic initiation and progression in the zebrafish embryo. He is interested in hematopoietic stem cell biology in the developing embryo and the dysregulation of cellular processes in these progenitors important for oncogenic transformation.
