As a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of our employees and visitors during the current COVID-19 outbreak, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is canceling and/or postponing events for public audiences. This includes tours of campus, concerts, lectures, and other public-facing events. CSHL will reevaluate future offerings on a rolling basis, and will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation as it evolves, following CDC recommendations and guidelines which can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.
Join us for the next edition of Cocktails & Chromosomes, featuring CSHL cancer biologist, Lingbo Zhang, Ph.D.
Stem cells give rise to all of our different cells, including neurons in our brains, epithelial cells in our skin, and the blood cells that carry oxygen to our whole body. But what happens when something goes wrong with these precursor cells?
Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) - a common blood cancer with few treatment options - takes hold when these blood-forming stem cells in the bone marrow develop a defect and do not grow into functional blood cells. Dr. Zhang will talk about how his lab is working to correct the defect and translate their basic discoveries into new therapies for this lethal disease.
