Community and International Work

Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

The major direction of research in my laboratory is to determine the role and mechanisms of hemopoietic dysregulation in human myeloid malignancies. The relation between molecular changes and cellular phenotype / pathophysiology is being explored using microarray and next generation technologies to evaluate differential gene expression profiles of MDS and AML marrow cells. The impact of cytokines and biologic response modifiers on these molecular features and hemopoietic response is being examined in clinical investigations with MDS and AML patients in therapeutic clinical trials with these agents.
