Myeloid cells, including neutrophils, monocytes and dendritic cells (DCs), play key roles in anti-microbial defense, as well as inflammatory diseases, cancer and aging. My lab’s main research focus is on pathways and mechanisms of myeloid cell production by hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. Our recent studies have revealed that inflammatory monocytes are heterogeneous, and that they arise from bone marrow progenitors via two independent pathways that yield distinct monocyte subsets. In ongoing studies, we are investigating how pathogens, cancer and aging impact monocyte production and functional programming.
