BD Biosciences Announces Winners of Research Grant Program
Date:8/29/2011

>Neil Rodrigues, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at Boston University, takes a novel approach to hematopoietic stem cell expansion. Rather than utilizing on conventional growth factors, Dr. Rodrigues employs small molecule compounds that promote stem cell division without differentiation. This approach has several advantages, including relatively low cost and the ability to target specific cell populations. He also investigates small molecule compounds that target leukemic stem cells which can sustain leukemia and cause disease relapse. Ultimately, this work could lead to new strategies that broaden the utility of stem cell therapy beyond traditional blood cancers and promote hematopoietic stem cell engraftment in patients immediately post-transplantation, when they are most prone to infection.
