Welcome to the Leo Wang Lab
Protein-focused Stem Cell Research
Our research focuses on using leading-edge mass spectrometric technologies to identify novel activation pathways in small numbers of blood cells. Our 2D-LC/MS3 platform enables us to phosphoproteomically profile hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells, leukemia cells and immune cells as they undergo state and fate transitions.
These strategies, combined with in vitro and in vivo model systems, will enable us to understand and to treat pediatric blood cancers and solid tumors more effectively.
