The research focus of the Bunting lab is to understand the molecular mechanisms controlling hematopoietic and immune cell biology, including studies of hematopoietic stem cells, hematopoiesis, leukemogenesis, inflammation, and cancer. The main goal of our basic research is to generate innovative and translational therapeutic strategies for treating hematologic disorders.
