Researcher | Research Overview
Wade's research focuses on the generation of hematopoietic stem cells from endothelium during development, with an emphasis on how mechanical cues from blood flow are interpreted to guide the endothelial-to-hematopoietic transition.
Researcher | Research Background
Wade holds a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology from the University of Oregon (2011). He did his doctoral studies at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine (Münster, Germany), investigating how genetic circuits and biomechanical signals intersect to control the correct diameter of blood vessels during development using the zebrafish model (2017). Pursuing his interest in mechanical control of cardiovascular development, Wade joined the lab of Dr. Trista E. North in December 2017 to study the development of the blood and the influence of biophysical forces on this process.
