Research is being conducted in areas of stem cell isolation, quantitation by in vivo assay, in vitro and in vivo growth and replication, gene insertion, and engraftment. Acquired knowledge can be applied clinically to enhance our ability to achieve successful hematopoietic stem cell therapy to cure both genetic and acquired diseases and to perform successful gene therapy using the hematopoietic stem cell as the target for gene transfection and for life-long expression of normal genes.
