Midwestern Progenitor Cell Consortium
The Midwestern Progenitor Cell Consortium is a Hub of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium.
The goal of the National Consortium is to identify and characterize progenitor cell lineages, to direct the differentiation of stem and progenitor cells to desired cell fates, and to develop new strategies to address the unique challenges presented by the transplantation of these cells.
The National Consortium has assembled clusters of synergistic research projects, each with a multi-disciplinary team of Principal Investigators, to establish virtual Research Hubs focused on progenitor cell biology.
The National Consortium also contains core research support facilities and skills development components.
