Improving the outcome of cord blood transplantation through cellular engineering

Dr. Pineault’s research is focused on the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating the differentiation of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC). Through his applied research projects, he translates this knowledge to the development of new manufacturing processes and therapeutic strategies to benefit HSC transplantation practice.

Why is this important?

Improving the reconstitution of the blood cells following a hematopoietic stem cell transplantation helps to speed up the recovery of patients, as well as reduce their dependency on transfusion products.
