Please join us for a talk by Dr. Diane Krause, 
Professor, Departments of
Laboratory Medicine, Cell Biology, and Pathology


News stories about stem cells seem to promise tremendous medical benefits from their use in a variety of therapies.  But what are the powers of these cells, and what are the actual uses to which stem cells are being put today?  Join Dr. Diane Krause of the Yale Stem Cell Center for a robust discussion of the present and future of stem cell research and practice.

Diane Krause, M.D., Ph.D, is a physician-scientist with responsibilities centered in three major environments.  As Director of the Yale Cooperative Center of Excellence in Molecular Hematology, she has established a national and international reputation as a leader in studies of adult stem cells and leukemia.  As Medical Director of Yale's clinical Stem Cell Transplantation Laboratory, she oversees clinical cell processing for the bone marrow transplantation program, as well as the Advanced Cell Therapy (ACT) GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) laboratory for clinical trials in cell therapy.  As Associate Director of the Yale Stem Cell Center, she has built a highly successful stem cell research coalition at Yale.  Her laboratory has made major discoveries regarding the transcriptional regulation of hematopoiesis, with an emphasis on megakaryocyte fate specification and maturation, as well as platelet function.  Recent discoveries include isolation and single-cell analysis of bipotent primary human megakaryocytic-erythroid progenitors (MEP), including single-cell RNA sequencing and single-cell time-lapse microscopy, allowing visualization of single cells as they undergo cell division and fate decisions.
