Learning Objectives

After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss historical approaches to hematopoietic stem cell mobilization.
  • Describe the benefits and limitations of current stem cell mobilization approaches.
  • Discuss a novel mobilization strategy involving the CXCR2 agonist GROβ and the CXCR4 agonist AMD3100.

Program Description

This program will review the available approaches and the benefits and limitations of each to stem cell mobilization for hematopoietic cell transplantation, and discuss a promising novel, rapid strategy for stem cell mobilization utilizing the CXCR2 agonist GROβ and the CXCR4 agonist AMD3100.

Speaker Biography

Dr. Jonathan Hoggatt is Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and holds appointments in both the Center for Cancer Research and Center for Transplantation Sciences of Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Hoggatt is also a principal faculty member of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute and an affiliate faculty member of the Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department at Harvard University. Dr Hoggatt trained with Dr. Louis Pelus at Indiana University School of Medicine and did his post-doctoral training with Dr. David Scadden at Harvard University. Jon is an expert in stem cells and hematopoiesis and his research endeavors focus on translational science in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. These studies have led to several clinical trials, licensed patents, and high-profile papers in Nature, Nature Medicine, Cell, Blood, Leukemia and others. He holds several patents in novel stem cell therapies and is a co-founder of Magenta Therapeutics.
