Blood Cell Development - A/Prof Stuart Fraser

Biographical details

Stuart Fraser joined the Discipline of Physiology as Sesquicentenial lecturer in Molecular Embryology in April 2010. Prior to returning to Australia, Dr. Fraser was Assistant Professor in Hematology/Medical Oncology in the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City for 6 years. Dr. Fraser also completed postdoctoral studies at the University of Mainz in Germany and spent 4 years at Kyoto University in Japan. Back to Top

Stuart's main research interests focus upon the mechanisms controlling the formation of the blood, or hematopoietic lineages, in the embryo and how these processes can go awry in the adult.
