We are interested in developmental biology of hematopoiesis using zebrafish as a model organism.
Our group currently focus on:
(1) Genetic control and molecular regulation of myeloid cell development.
(2) Thrombocyte formation during embryonic development.
(3) The regulatory mechanism of HSC migration in early development.
