Interactions cellules souches-niches : physiologie, tumeurs et réparation tissulaire (SToRM)

Research unit


The team develops projects in the areas of hematology, vascular biology, renal biology and tissue repair, studying the interactions between stem cells respective tissues and their microenvironments. Research programs include basic research approaches as well as their medical applications. Clinical studies focus on cell therapy for tissue repair and immuno-regulation of transplantation. The mutual interactions between tumor stem cells (leukemia and renal tumor) and their niches (bone marrow and renal tissue) are also studied.
