The Luis lab focuses on the role of the bone marrow microenvironment in the regulation of blood stem cell function. We are interested in decoding the molecular crosstalk between stem cells and their niches, it's role in the maintenance of homeostasis and the development of haematological malignancies. 

haematopoietic stem cell niche lab

We are recruiting. Post-doctoral position will soon be advertised here.

We also welcome informal enquires about positions in the lab. If you are interested in joining the lab, please get in touch.
