USC scientist Rong Lu studies how stem cells work together

USC Stem Cell scientist Rong Lu studies two general questions: how do individual stem cells differ from each other? And second, how do different stem cells work together to maintain proper tissue size and function? Her lab studies these questions in blood-forming stem cells with the goal of controlling tissue regeneration and improving the therapeutic treatment of diseases ranging from bone marrow failure and Parkinson’s disease, to countless others.
