Dr. Kaufman is an assistant professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology, Oncology.
His research interests focus on hematopoietic and endothelial cell development from human and non-human primate embryonic stem (ES) cells. This research uses ES cells to understand the earliest stages of hematopoiesis.
In vitro and in vivo models are used to elucidate both extracellular protein interactions and intracellular genetic regulation that impact these developmental pathways. ES cells offer a unique model to investigate basic developmental biology and may serve as a therapeutic cell source to replace or repair cells or tissues damaged by disease or other degenerative processes.
