The Zhan Lab focuses on the pathogenesis and treatment of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). The MPNs are clonal stem cell disorders characterized by hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell (HSPC) expansion, overproduction of mature blood cells, and increased risk of cardiovascular complications. Using molecular and genetic techniques in transgenic murine models, MPN patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cell lines, and primary patient samples, we study the hematopoietic microenvironment niche, clonal competition, and vascular pathology in the pathogenesis of MPNs. The ultimate goal of our research is to develop more effective therapies for patients with MPNs and other clonal hematologic malignancies.
The Postdoctoral Associate is dedicated to supporting basic science and pre-clinical research. The Postdoctoral Associate must possess a strong work ethic, creativity and enthusiasm, and effective written and verbal communication skills.
