In particular, Adam and his research team will be applying single-cell genomics to gain insights into the clonal architecture of propagating cancer stem cell populations in the myeloproliferative neoplasms. This will allow mutation status to be correlated with global gene expression profiles, at the single cell level, in order to help explain phenotypic heterogeneity and mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies in these disorders. These studies will help to translate advances in single cell technology through detailed analysis of human cancer stem cells, with broader relevance for cancer biology.
