Marcos E. García-Ojeda

Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Merced

Using the hematopoetic (bone marrow) stem cell as a model, Professor Garcia-Ojeda's lab studies the microenvironmental and genetic signals required for stem cell function and lymphocyte development. In particular, he is interested in the role of the transcription factor GATA-3 in the commitment and differentiation of stem cells into T cells. He also studies infectious disease/host response.
