Discovering ATCC Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells – Model Systems to Study the Immune and Cardiovascular Systems

The cellular components of blood originate in bone medullary cavities. In the process of becoming fully functional, hematopoietic cells undergo a program of differentiation which begins in the marrow and may be completed in the peripheral tissues and organs such as blood, lymph, thymus, and spleen. The result is a diversity of cell types, each of which displays specific transport, hemostatic, and immune functions. Hematopoietic research tools have high value for investigating the pathogenesis of anemia and autoimmune diseases, and are useful controls in liquid tumor studies. In this webinar, ATCC scientists will discuss recent developments in developing models of hematopoiesis using immunological cells such as CD34+ bone marrow cells, CD14+ peripheral blood monocytes, and primary peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
