Injured tissue requires a support from blood cells produced by bone marrow stem cells. KN research assistant professor Norifumi Urao and colleagues revealed regulated oxidant signals in bone marrow play a key role in regenerative blood cell production in cardiovascular diseases.

The basic biomedical research lab in KN studied how blood cells are generated in a mouse model of peripheral artery disease, collaborating with the UIC College of Medicine.

The work is co-authored with KN professor, Timothy J. Koh; UIC alumna, Milie Fang; KN post-doc Pijus Barman; and research scientist, Muthu Thiruppathi.
