Bone marrow models to study blood and musculoskeletal disorders

(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) For her research on development of hematological and musculoskeletal disorders, Dr. Cornelia Lee-Thedieck, scientist at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, is awarded an ERC Starting Grant: The European Research Council decided to fund her project ‘bloodANDbone’ with €1.5 million for five years. Lee-Thedieck develops models of the human bone marrow to study the regeneration of blood and bone by stem cells and how this regeneration is disturbed in diseases like leukemia or bone metastases.
