Welcome to the Vanuytsel Lab!

Our mission is to find better solutions for patients suffering from blood disorders. To do so, we 1) study hematopoietic development and the biology of blood stem cells to improve hematopoietic stem cell transplantation outcomes and we 2) generate red blood cells from sickle cell disease patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to

 assess novel therapeutic options across the diverse patient population that we serve here at the Center of Excellence in Sickle Cell Disease at Boston Medical Center.
