Discoveries for a Better Tomorrow: Blood

Preserving Memory - Mollie K. Meffert, M.D.

Dr. Mollie Meffert and her team investigate how genes and electrical flow interact to strengthen connections between neurons. These studies lay the groundwork for new therapies for brain disorders in which the connections between neurons fail to grow or function properly, such as Alzheimer’s, autism and schizophrenia.

Treating Diseases by Understanding Cell Identity - Patrick Cahan, Ph.D.

Dr. Cahan's lab studies the molecular basis of cell type identity. He is making a tool that measures how closely cells grown in a lab mimic those in our bodies, which could help pave the way to replacing damaged tissue and more effectively studying diseases in the lab. The tool will also help him detect how cancer rewires the normal circuitry of a cell.

Using Stem Cells to Treat Blood Disorders - Dr. Elias Zambidis

Dr. Elias Zambidis’ lab studies human pluripotent stem cells, which may one day be used to treat blood disorders, like leukemia.

Improving Bone Marrow Transplants - Dr. Linzhao Cheng

Using engineered stem cells, Dr. Linzhao Cheng is working to develop improved methods for bone marrow transplants and blood transfusions.
