Research and/or clinical interests 

Dr. Lev Silberstein studies factors that regulate the behavior of normal and malignant stem cells in the bone marrow. He and his colleagues aim to develop new ways to boost blood cell production in patients with blood disorders, inherited bone marrow failure and those recovering from blood stem cell transplants.

Current projects include:

  • Characterization of novel extrinsic regulators of hematopoietic stem cell/progenitor quiescence 
  • Pharmacological modulation of hematopoietic stem cell quiescence to restore hematopoiesis in myelodysplasia
