MRC Molecular Haematology Unit
At the MRC Molecular Haematology Unit, we aim to understand how stem cells produce mature blood cells in a healthy context, and how this process is perturbed in common blood disorders.
MRC MHU includes 14 research teams with over 140 scientists who share a common goal, to improve the prognosis of patients with inherited and acquired blood diseases.
This is an exciting time for the field of haematology. The -omics revolution is enabling scientists to unravel the complex molecular processes governing biology at unprecedented speed. At the MRC MHU our teams are committed to applying such cutting-edge techniques to better understand the molecular basis of blood diseases, and to develop treatments to improve the lives of patients. - Professor KJ Patel
