Grant Description

The goal of this project is to describe a new field of science: peroxisome transfer. This has never been shown, and we are poised to be the first lab in the world to demonstrate peroxisome transfer occurs and that it supports bone marrow regeneration after injury. Our aims are to demonstrate this process this in vitro and in vivo using our exclusively created ubiquitous peroxisome reporter mouse.
