Professor of Haematology
- Director and Professor, Institute of Haematology and Blood Diseases Hospital, CAMS/PUMC
Prof. Cheng‘s laboratory primarily focuses on both genetic and epigenetic mechanisms in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells, with each project guided by approaches intended to elucidate basic principles and develop practical strategies. Leukemia and bone marrow failure are the main diseases against which research advances in the laboratory are achieved. Through broadly collaborative approaches, Prof. Cheng is also committed to training hematologists and stem cell biologists, and to building strong hematology and stem cell research programs that will ultimately benefit the patients.
