Biology of hematopoietic stem cells and malignancies

Research in this laboratory focuses on understanding the epigenetic mechanisms governing the biology of stem cells, development and cancer with an emphasis on the role of DNA modifying enzymes in normal and malignant hematopoiesis. We utilize mice as model system and combine bioinformatics, cellular and molecular approaches to study how DNA modifying enzymes reshape the epigenome and regulate cell fate and cancer. For more details on our research see previous work (Cimmino & Dawlaty et al Nature Immunology 2015, Zhao, Chen & Dawlaty et al Cell Reports 2015, Dawlaty et al Developmental Cell 2014,) or visit our website and

Application Requirements: (1) Ph.D. or M.D. or equivalent degree with a record of publications (2) Prior training in hematopoietic stem cell biology and hematologic malignancies is desired. (3) Prior experience with general tissue culture, molecular biology and mouse work is essential. (4) Prior experience in bioinformatics and epigenetics is highly desired.

Message From the Director

I. David Goldman, M.D.

Since the start of the 20th century, scientists have sought ways of harnessing the immune system to attack cancer cells. The challenge has been enormous. The immune system is designed to destroy foreign ...
