Regulation of Haematopoietic Cell Differentiation

Description
The mammalian blood cell system provides cell biologists with one of the best experimental models in which to unravel how one stem cell – the haematopoietic stem cell – gives rise to the many different types of cells of the blood and immune systems. The classic model for this process depicts two families of cells; lymphoid and myeloid. This dichotomy has been increasingly challenged in recent years – to the extent that the accumulation of new findings culminated in a Nature commentary suggesting that "the latest research will necessitate revision of textbook accounts". We proposed the 'Pair-wise Relationships Model' of haematopoiesis, which is an updated version of our 'Sequential Determination Model' (proposed in 1985). Our model groups the pair-wise relationships between lineage fates around a broken circle: to date there aren't findings that refute this model. Ongoing studies are examining whether our model is a correct representation of haematopoiesis by extending understanding of the events that govern commitment of haematopoietic stem cells to becoming one particular type of cell. Endeavours to understand the controls that drive cell differentiation are focussed on signals that arise from all-trans retinoic acid and vitamin D3. We are also interested in the use of novel retinoids to modulate haematopoiesis and the behaviour of malignant cells.

Research - School of Mechanical Engineering

Research and Training Centre in Physical Sciences for Health

Description
This page is the home site of the Research and Training Centre in Physical Sciences for Health (PSIBS DTC) at the University of Birmingham, established by EPSRC for the high-quality research and pioneering development of biomedical imaging techniques. These techniques are inherently interdisciplinary, drawing upon chemistry, physics, computer science and other subjects to build an integrated approach to postgraduate study across a wide spectrum of physical sciences at the life sciences interface.

Research areas - Environmental Health Sciences research - School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences

Description
Research areas in Environmental Health Sciences in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham. Research in the group is loosely gathered into four principal areas: Atmospheric Chemistry and Air Pollution, Environmental Nanoscience, Meteorology and Climate and Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs).
