Cristina Lo CelsoPhD
Dr. Lo Celso graduated with a PhD from University College London, UK, in 2005 in the field of epidermal stem cell biology and subsequently undertook postdoctoral training at Harvard University, Boston, where she developed intravital microscopy of the haematopoietic stem cell niche. In 2009 she was appointed Assistant Professor at Imperial College London, where she has been establishing her research group.
Dr. Lo Celso’s research focuses on better understanding the cellular mechanisms regulating haematopoietic stem cell function and leukaemia development and uses an interdisciplinary approach that combines continuous development of mouse bone marrow intravital microscopy techniques, computational analysis of the images obtained, molecular profiling and interventions and mathematical modelling.
