The Paddison Lab uses functional genomics to probe the underlying biology of mammalian stem and progenitor cells. Our primary goal is to define the biological units of self-renewal, expansion, and lineage commitment in model stem cell systems, including: embryonic stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, neural progenitor cells, and brain tumor initiating cells (i.e., brain tumor stem cells). We are particularly interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms that allow stem cells to maintain their unique identity and developmental potential.
If you are interested in joining the Paddison Lab as an undergraduate, graduate student, postdoctoral fellow, or visiting scientist, please contact Patrick Paddison with a statement of your research interests and CV. We welcome applications from motivated individuals with an interest in bringing creative and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of stem cell and cancer biology.
