Yasamine Ghorbanian is a graduate student in the Inlay lab.

Research Interests

There are currently two competing theories regarding the origin of hematopoiesis during embryonic development. One attributes the initial source of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to the dorsal aorta, while the other attributes it to the yolk sac. Yasamine is seeking to distinguish between these two models in order to try and understand the progression of development of HSCs from their embryonic precursors and identify their site(s) of origin. Elucidating the origins of HSCs during embryonic development is important for understanding the induction process from pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) to HSCs to allow for further development of HSC therapies.
