Utilizing Zebrafish to Understand the Molecular Control of Blood Development
From Jeff Layne
Department of Biological Sciences, CSU, Chico
Dr. Stachura discusses his research studying the vertebrate hematopoietic system with the genetically amenable zebrafish. In this talk, he presents the assays that he developed to study how mature blood cells are generated from hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. He also discusses the utility and future promise of using zebrafish to study, prevent, and treat human blood diseases such as anemia, thrombocytopenia, and leukemia.
