Research interests

Cellular interactions during the early differentiation of blood cells are being examined in mammalian embryos. Experimental studies on the identification of local regulatory factors of hemopoiesis currently represent a vast research field, but emphasize mainly studies with postnatal mammalian animals. Dr. Daniel's studies have focused on the identification of hemopoietic cellular interactions in mammalian embryos and fetuses. Experimental embryological procedures involving microdissections and microculture techniques are utilized to isolate the cellular components of embryonic hemopoietic tissues (yolk sac, fetal liver, spleen and other tissues). The role of the various embryonic tissue components in the regulation of prenatal hemopoiesis is determined using in utero and modern tissue culture functional assays together with immunostaining procedures.
