Stelios Lefkopoulos

from Thessaloniki, Greece
IMPRS fellow since October 2015 in Trompouki lab
Research interestsDuring my bachelor studies I have always been interested in how signaling pathways can regulate cell fate and, ultimately, the whole organism’s cell composition and function. My PhD project evolves around the role of inflammatory signaling in hematopoiesis. We want to understand  how inflammatory signals can be activated in the absence of infection and have an impact on the process of blood formation during embryonic and adult hematopoiesis. Understanding thoroughly the mechanisms that regulate hematopoiesis, will hopefully enable us to manipulate Hematopoietic Stem Cells and deal with severe blood disorders humanity is suffering from.
