Chung Lab

The Chung Lab studies hematopoiesis and stem cell biology in the context of hematologic malignancies.

Chung Lab uses primary human specimens, patient-derived xenograft models, and genetically engineered mouse models to study the molecular mechanisms underlying disease stem cell function in hematologic malignancies.
