MGH researchers explain their fields of study and share their New Years resolutions in this thoughtful piece featuring Drs. Fatima Cody Stanford, Nitya Jain, Shannon Stott, Helen Riess, Sareh Parangi, Pike See Cheah, Guisy Romano-Clarke, and our very own PI, Jonathan Hoggatt. This year, the Hoggatt lab hopes to better understand hematopoietic stem cell heterogeneity to enhance bone marrow transplantation.
After several puzzling discoveries have proven that certain stem cell populations are not stem cells at all, or that some differentiated adult cells are able to revert to a stem-like state in certain situations, scientists are redefining what it means to be a stem cell. Dr. Hans Clevers, Dr. Jonathan Hoggatt, and Dr. Pamela Robey discuss tissue repair, phony treatments, and the controversy of what characterizes “stemness” in this piece by Jordana Cepelewicz of Quanta Magazine.
Congratulations to Dr. Jonathan Hoggatt, who has received a 2019 ASH Scholar Award in the category of basic/translational research, one of the organization’s most prestigious awards!
Hear about our work to make donating bone marrow stem cells easier for the donor, and making the transplant better for the patient.
