Adult stem cells are a powerful source in tissue regeneration as
well as in cancer.
How adult stem cell are regulated in health,
disease and aging is still not very well understood.
has the stem cell itself to changes in its phenotype, or is the
niche the driving force?
How do normal stem cell become malignant
Is aging of stem cells a common theme, and can we develop,
based on our knowledge, pathways that revert aging?
Can we attenuate
the steps that lead from a normal to a malignant stem cell?
reside stem cells and why?
These are questions we would like to
find answers for in the Geiger lab
