About Hilde Schjerven

Hilde Schjerven, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Laboratory Medicine with a research program focused on transcriptional regulation in the immune system. 

The overall interest of Dr. Schjerven is to study transcriptional regulation of hematopoietic development and how deregulation of key transcription factors can lead to disease. The main focus of the current work is on the transcription factor Ikaros, encoded by the Ikzf1 gene, and to elucidate the mechanism by which this factor controls both hematopoietic development and tumor suppression in the lymphoid lineage.
