Welcome to the Gillette Lab in the Department of Pathology at the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. We are an interdisciplinary team of scientists who study how cell communication within the bone marrow microenvironment serves to regulate healthy and malignant cells. Currently, we focus our research on studies with hematopoietic and leukemic stem cells as well as solid tumor cells such as ovarian caner. Utilizing cutting edge imaging techniques and in vivo mouse models with traditional biochemistry, we are investigating the mechanisms that control cell adhesion, trafficking, signaling, repopulation and expansion. Our goal is to identify molecules and mechanisms that can be directly targeted to 1) improve regenerative stem cell therapies and 2) treat the progression of specific cancers.
