Dr. Brandon Hadland is a hematologist/oncologist and stem cell transplantation expert who treats young patients in Seattle Children’s Hospital transplant service. His research focuses on the origin of hematopoietic stem cells, which give rise to blood and immune cells. He harnesses new technologies to simultaneously analyze gene activities across the many different cell types within the physical site where the stem cells evolve and to characterize interactions between those various cells. He aims to identify the specific biological signals that trigger the formation of blood stem cells. His ultimate goal is to generate new sources of blood stem cells that could one day be used to correct inherited, blood-based diseases.
