Lonza has launched its Hematopoietic and Immune Cells Knowledge Center, an online
knowledge and education resource for scientists working in the field of hematopoietic research.
The new portal has been specifically designed to help researchers stay up to date with this
rapidly evolving area by providing concise but insightful summaries of important papers and by
commenting on continued developments through bespoke review articles.
Although the portal has only recently been launched, it already includes a host of valuable
content. This content includes educational articles, such as a review of the function and
differentiation pathways of T-Cells and an introduction to the role of natural killer (NK) cells.
Articles on the portal are also designed to help researchers get the most out of their reagents,
such as when using peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and other blood cell types.
Extending beyond research and looking further into translational applications, discussions are
included on the use of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) for human transplantation to treat
patients undergoing high doses of radiation and chemotherapy.
New articles are added to the portal regularly, and suggestions for future content from others in
the community are encouraged. The Lonza team believes that the portal will become an
essential resource for researchers working with hematopoietic cells and recognizes the
importance of their feedback to ensure that the information provided continues to be relevant,
comprehensive and valuable.
“It’s an exciting time to be a scientist, with seemingly endless opportunities to utilize scientific
discovery to make a positive impact on our lives. However, with so many new papers published
on an almost daily basis, pressure is increasing on researchers to keep up with the latest
advancements,” said Tracee Crossett, Product Manager for Hematopoietic and Immune Cells
at Lonza Bioscience Solutions. “To help scientific researchers, we developed the
Hematopoietic and Immune Cells Knowledge Center. What started as just a collection of recent
paper summaries has since morphed into a rapidly expanding educational and entertaining
