The JAK /STAT pathway plays a key role in stem cell biology and is implicated in many human malignancies. A single acquired gain-of-function V617F mutation in JAK2 is present in most patients with a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN), a spectrum of clonal haematological malignancies which arise in the haematopoietic stem cell compartment. These disorders are experimentally tractable, permit clonal analysis and provide a window on the earliest stages of tumorigenesis. The Green lab is focussing on the pathogenesis of the MPNs and particularly on the molecular and cellular consequences of aberrant JAK /STAT signalling. Recent highlights of general relevance for stem cell and cancer biology include unexpected insights into chromatin biology, clonal evolution and haematopoietic stem cell function.
