The aim of our group is to decipher how differentiation pathways of haematopoietic cells are influenced by different microenvironments. To achieve that we use state-of-the-art single-cell RNA-seq, single-cell ATAC-seq and spatial transcriptomics data generation combined with computational analysis to establish principles of blood lineage differentiation. We are working with human foetal haematopoietic cells to reveal the dynamics and cellular programmes active during human blood development as well as cancer patient samples to investigating the influence of tumour microenvironment in the context of pathological differentiation of immune cells. We are a team of highly collaborative researchers performing exciting interdisciplinary science using the cutting-edge experimental and computational technologies.
