Dr. Kristin Hope's team, in collaboration with efforts from Dr. Jon Draper's lab, have discovered two new regulators of the gene Musashi-2, a key protein that promotes the regenerative capacity of blood stem cells.


Funding for this research was provided by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research, and the Canada Research Chairs Program.

We would also like to thank Muluken Belew, Sonam Bhatia, Ava Keyvani Chahi, and Sefan Rentas for their efforts on this project.
