de BruijnProfessor Marella de Bruijn, Governing Body Fellow at Green Templeton College, Programme Leader at the MRC Molecular Haematology Unit at the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, Radcliffe Department of Medicine, has been awarded the title of Professor of Developmental Haematopoiesis at the University of Oxford. Marella leads a team investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie the birth of blood stem cells during embryonic development. Her work has contributed fundamental insights into these developmental processes. Marella is Director of Graduate Studies for the Radcliffe Department of Medicine and MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, and recently became the new Director of the Oxford-MRC Doctoral Training Partnership.

Marella says ‘I feel privileged to have worked with exceptionally talented students, postdocs, and colleagues to learn from the embryo how to generate blood stem cells, with the ultimate aim to contribute this knowledge to the development of novel and improved stem cell therapies for regenerative medicine. Equally important, the contacts with students and colleagues in my role as Director of Graduate Studies, the Oxford-MRC DTP and as a Fellow at Green Templeton have been incredibly stimulating and energizing and have strengthened my wish to help nurture the next generation of scientists.’
