Blazar Laboratory

Research in immunobiology and transplantation

This is the first caption


The main research interest in the Blazar laboratory is in immunobiology and transplantation. There are five basic project areas we are currently investigating:

  1. Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD)
  2. Regulatory T Cells
  3. Immune recovery and regeneration post-transplant
  4. Graft-versus-leukemia (GVL)
  5. Genetic manipulations and reprogramming of immature and mature cells


The laboratory is actively involved in education, participating in undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral training programs (see lab staff). University of Minnesota graduate students from the programs of Microbiology, Immunology and Cancer Biology (MICAB), Molecular, Cellular Developmental Biology and Genetics (MCDB&G), Molecular, Cellular and Structural Biology and Stem Cell Biology are eligible to join the laboratory. Fellows in the Department of Pediatrics are eligible for a research rotation in the laboratory. Medical students may also contact the lab if interested in research. Driven and determined individuals are always encouraged to contact us regarding joining our research teams.
