James DeGregori, Ph.D., Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus, will use mouse models to ask whether the increase in leukemias associated with Down syndrome is actually caused by stem cell defects. The study could indicate ways to improve blood cell function and prevent leukemias in people with Down syndrome. More
