Dr. Adoro is an immunologist with an interest in understanding the process of blood cell development. His laboratory seeks to understand how the mechanisms that sense and maintain cellular proteome homeostasis (“proteostasis”) control hematopoietic cell development and function. These studies are revealing that the dysfunction of key proteostasis regulators impairs stem and blood cell integrity and contributes to the emergence of diseases including blood cancers, chronic infection and organismal growth defects.
