My research focuses on the role and function of certain transcription factors in regulating normal and malignant human hematopoiesis. These research questions are addressed using in vitro and in vivo techniques and different kinds of sequencing techniques (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ...).
The goal is to further unravel how certain factors regulate normal human hematopoiesis, to get a better understanding of what goes wrong in the development leading to leukaemogenesis.
