Functional genomics of stem cell and cancer cell biology
Faculty Contact Information
The Paddison Lab uses functional genomics to probe the underlying biology of mammalian stem and progenitor cells. Our primary goal is to define the biological units of self-renewal, expansion, and lineage commitment in model stem cell systems, including: embryonic stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, neural progenitor cells, and brain tumor initiating cells (i.e., brain tumor stem cells). We are particularly interested in the understanding the molecular mechanisms that allow stem cells to maintain their unique identity and developmental potential.
