Yale Stem Cell Center
Welcome to Yale Stem Cell Center!
The mission of the Yale Stem Cell Center is to advance our understanding of stem cell biology and to harness its potential to improve human health.Our goals:
- Enrich basic understanding of stem and progenitor cells.
- Establish interdisciplinary, collaborations to develop stem cell therapies, and translate discoveries to clinical trials.
- Address ethical and policy issues.
- Foster understanding and awareness of stem cell biology to the public.

A March 2012 paper by Yale School of Medicine authors in the journal Developmental Cell elucidates several of the mechanisms that take place to prevent cytokinesis from occurring. These findings are relevant not only to normal hematopoiesis and the maturation process of normal megakaryocytes but also to leukemia. In megakaryoblastic leukemia, for example, cells don't fully mature. The authors are now investigating the link between normal megakaryocytopoiesis and the pathology in megakaryocytic leukemia.
