About:

Dr. Haneline is a stem cell biologist whose research focuses on how dysfunction of stem and progenitor cells impacts the pathogenesis of hematopoietic and vascular diseases. Her laboratory is actively investigating whether pathologic oxidative stress encountered by either a child with type 1 diabetes or a fetus exposed to a diabetic intrauterine environment leads to altered endothelial progenitor cell function. She is involved in an NIH-funded Obstetric-Fetal Pharmacologic Research Unit Network that proposes basic and translational pharmacologic studies of drug disposition and effect on endothelial progenitor cell subsets during normal and abnormal pregnancies. Dr. Haneline is working with collaborators to explore the potential role of endothelial progenitor cell dysfunction in type 1 diabetes and childhood obesity.
