Beyond stem cells: self renewal of differentiated macrophages

Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Michael H. Sieweke

Stem Cell and Macrophage Biology, Centre d'Immunologie de Marseille-Luminy. Marseille, France

Michael Sieweke, from the Centre d'Immunologie de Marseille-Luminy, France, studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of self-renewal and cell fate choice that guide the differentiation from hematopoietic stem cells to macrophages. He is interested in the regulation of these processes by transcription factors, particularly of the Maf family. Currently he develops research projects investigating the lineage commitment of hematopoietic stem cells, self-renewal and reprogramming in mature macrophages and the role of monocyte/macrophage subtypes in inflammation and tissue regeneration. He has been invited by Thomas Graf (CRG).
