Research Project

Cell-derived microparticles (MPs) released from budding off the cell membrane of several type of mammalian cells. These MPs have been found playing an important role in cell-cell interaction by transffering RNA, protein and lipids. Based on the characteristics that these MP are target specific, biocompatible and immunologically inert, my project focus on engineering megakaryocyte-derived MPs as vesicles for exogenous-material-transfer, and investigating the key factors that manipulate the interactions between megakaryocyte-derived MPs with hematopoietic stem cell.
