Emmanuelle Passegué, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Hematology/Oncology Division in the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), USA. Dr. Passegué received her Ph.D. in molecular and cellular endocrinology from the University Paris XI, France. She then trained as a mouse geneticist with Dr. Erwin Wagner (Institute for Molecular pathology, Vienna, Austria) and as a stem cell biologist with Dr. Irv Weissman (Stanford University, USA) before joining the UCSF faculty in 2006. Her research investigates the biology of blood-forming hematopoietic stem cells in normal and deregulated contexts such as development of hematological malignancies and physiological aging. Recent work from her laboratory investigates the function of autophagy in the metabolic control of hematopoietic stem cell activity. Dr. Passegué has received a number of awards, including a scholar award from the American Society of Hematology, a scholar award from the Rita Allen Foundation, a new faculty award from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and a scholar award from the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society.
