Final Report Summary - HSCSPECDDR (Elucidation of DNA Damage Response mechanisms in human normal and leukemia stem cells)
Life-long blood regeneration is critically dependent on self-renewing multipotential hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). HSCs’ nearly unlimited self-renewal potential and lifetime persistence in the body, in contrast to the committed progenitors (CP), signifies the need for...

Final Report Summary - FRACWIRE (Fractional Phases and Non-Abelian Anyons in Quantum Wires)
Topological states of matter are distinguished from conventional phases, such as magnets, crystals, and superconductors, which are classified according to Landau's paradigm of symmetry breaking. Instead, topological states show measurable phenomena such as quantized Hall...
