3-year PhD Project on “Transcriptional regulation of intestinal stem cells during ageing”

Posted by on June 9th, 2020

The Korzelius lab has a funded position for a 3-year PhD at the University of Kent in Canterbury, U.K. We use the Drosophila intestine as a model system for age-related decline of organ function. Similar to the mammalian small intestine and colon, the fly intestine is maintained by a population of adult Intestinal Stem Cells[…]

Research Highlight #3: IL-1 regulates haematopoietic stem cell pool size via PU.1

Posted by on May 25th, 2020

Today, we move to mouse adult haematopoiesis, with an elegant work on inflammation and stem cell biology. As always, feedback is more than welcome! Chronic inflammation is one of the classic events underlying aging and infection response. When associated with loss of quiescence in haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), it is commonly the initiating event in[…]

Research Highlight #2: Blood stem cells heterogeneity arises from accessible chromatin

Posted by on May 18th, 2020

Hi there! Today’s highlight is focusing on a major question for the haematology community: what is causing blood stem cell heterogeneity? Please do not hesitate to let me know your thoughts in the comments here or on Twitter (@BioRugby)!   Highlight #2: Chromatin accessibility is the main source of heterogeneity in foetal haematopoiesis We have[…]
