Stachura Laboratory

 
 

David Stachura, Ph.D., Principal Investigator

David performed his graduate work in the laboratory of Mitchell Weiss, M.D. Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania, studying the role of the essential transcription factor Gata1 in mouse red blood cell and megakaryocyte differentiation.  Afterwards, he performed his postdoctoral work in the laboratory of David Traver, Ph.D. at the University of California San Diego, where he developed novel in vitro assays to characterize zebrafish blood cell progenitors.

David started his own laboratory in 2014, and is dedicated to integrating his research on blood cell development into undergraduate and graduate education.
