Researchers Identify Switch That Converts Adult Stem Cells Into Fetal-Like Stem Cells
Chief, Integrative Immunobiology Unit, LI
Work in the Integrative Immunobiology Unit is interested in how gene expression is orchestrated as cells differentiate from stem cells into effector cells in the immune system. In particular, the laboratory will study how these systems are controlled by the endogenous RNA interference machinery (e.g., microribonucleoprotein silencing complexes).
Dr. Muljo joined the Laboratory of Immunology (LI) in July 2008 to head the Integrative Immunobiology Unit. He earned his Ph.D. from the Graduate Program in Immunology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Part of his dissertation work was performed at the department of molecular and cell biology in the division of immunology and pathogenesis, University of California, Berkeley. This was followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at the Immune Disease Institute (formerly the Center for Blood Research), Harvard Medical School.
