My laboratory studies angiogenesis and stem cell biology relevant to human disease in zebrafish. We have identified the zebrafish hematopoietic stem cell, developed models for the myeloproliferative neoplasms, identified for the first time a renal stem cell. In addition we study how primary human tumors induce an angiogenic response and grow in zebrafish embryos.
