Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

The Weissman lab studies the identification, isolation, and function of normal and cancer stem cells, including the lineage of their precursors and progeny, and the phylogeny of stem cells in colonial protochordates. They also are deeply involved in taking normal and cancer stem cell discoveries through preclinical proof of principle, and to and through early phase clinical trials in humans.
