Sharing Research—Sara Nik, a fourth-year Ph.D. student in developmental & molecular biology, attended the first European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Conference on Hematopoietic Stem Cells: From the Embryo to the Aging Organism. Held at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, Germany, the three-day workshop brought together leading experts in the field of hematopoiesis (the formation of blood cells) to discuss advances in their field. Ms. Nik presented a poster illustrating the thesis research she is conducting under the mentorship of Dr. Teresa Bowman. It described the role of the spliceosome, a large macromolecular "machine" within cells that is crucial for regulating gene expression. The poster showed how dysfunction of the spliceosome can lead to defects in blood cell formation that can lead to blood cancers such as myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Dr. Bowman is assistant professor of developmental & molecular biology and of medicine.
