Research in the Kang lab focuses on areas to define the genes and molecules in the bone marrow stem cells and in the bone marrow micro-environment that regulate hematopoietic stem cell function and number and to identify molecules and pathways that can be used as biomarkers for treatment responses and as therapeutic targets for the treatment of multiple myeloma.

Current Studies

My lab research is focused on two areas. The first area is to define the genes and molecules in the bone marrow stem cells and in the bone marrow micro-environment that regulate hematopoietic stem cell function and number. We are particularly interested in the roles of CXCR4 and Pim kinases in hematopoiesis. The second area of my research is to identify molecules and pathways that can be used as biomarkers for treatment responses and as therapeutic targets for the treatment of multiple myeloma.
