Summary of Meeting:
Our understanding of the regulation of hematopoiesis at the molecular level has greatly increased over the last few years. There has been a rapid identification of the transcription factors that control both differentiation and the signal transduction pathways that contribute to proliferation and maintenance of the cells. The precise role for many of these genes is often dramatically illustrated through the derivation of mice that lack individual genes, and, more frequently, multiple genes. A major challenge at present is the integration of the information derived from these studies to develop a better understanding of how the various aspects of hematopoiesis are integrated. The goal of the meeting is to bring together investigators working on various aspects of hematopoiesis. By bringing these investigators together, it is anticipated that the knowledge exchanged and the discussions that arise will lead to the formulation of new concepts and approaches to studying hematopoiesis.
