Haematology and angiology
The use of bone marrow transplants is one of the longest standing clinical techniques in regenerative medicine; it has been refined to the point where only haematopoietic stem cells can be transplanted when needed.
This deeper understanding of how blood and blood vessels are generated holds great potential, which includes not only the growth of blood vessels, but also the generation of whole blood in vitro.

Shane’s research focuses on molecular and cellular mechanisms of angiogenesis.
Research in Valerie’s group focuses on further understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the formation of the haematopoietic system.
Georges’ lab is interested in the role of transcription factors in the development, maintenance and malignancies of the haematopoietic system.
