The development and therapy of myeloproliferative neoplasms are the focus of the Zhan lab (MPNs). Hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell (HSPC) growth and overproduction of adult blood cells are hallmarks of MPNs, which are clonal stem cell diseases. Although the acquired mutation JAK2V617F plays a key role in these illnesses, the precise molecular pathways underlying MPN HSPC development remain unknown, limiting the efficacy of existing treatments. Our group investigates how hematopoietic microenvironment cells (e.g. endothelial cells, megakaryocytes) contribute to neoplastic stem cell expansion in MPNs using molecular and genetic approaches in both MPN patient samples and transgenic animal models. Our research's ultimate goal is to decipher the fundamental principles of stem cell biology in order to produce more effective therapeutics for MPN patients.
