Hematopoiesis is the process during which pluripotent stem cells give rise to lineage committed progenitors that differentiate into mature erythroid, myeloid, and lymphoid cells. This is a finely regulated process that is required for optimal maintenance of peripheral blood counts. Alterations in hematopoiesis can lead to a variety of bone marrow failure syndromes and hematological malignancies. Treatment of these diseases requires a detailed study of pathogenic mechanisms that lead to hematopoietic failure.
