Rong Lu, PhD

Associate Professor of Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine and Gerontology


The Lu Lab studies stem cell coordination, regulation and malfunction from a single cell perspective. The lab uses mouse hematopoietic stem cells as a model system and integrate research strategies from various disciplines including molecular biology, cell biology, systems biology, bio-engineering and bioinformatics. Their research focuses on understanding the differences between individual stem cells and how they coordinate with each other. These studies can provide new insights into the origin of diseases such as leukemia as well as identify new therapeutic targets to treat them.
