Welcome To The Hockemeyer Lab

The focus of our work is to establish reliable models of human diseases using genetically engineered human and stem cell and mouse models and functional genomics screening approaches. We are particularly interested in developing rigorous genetic approaches to study human disease, development and cell biology where conventional animal models or tissue culture systems do not adequately recapitulate human biology. To do this we are  leveraging our expertise in human stem cell techniques and genome editing, humanized mouse models to elucidate processes of  human stem cells renewal and differentiation and during tumor formation.
