Professor of Medicine (Hematology), Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsRegulation of hematopoiesis in myeloid malignancies with special emphasis on myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Laboratory studies utilize DNA microarrays to determine differential gene expression in MDS and AML. Transcriptomic abnormalities are also being evaluated using RNA-Seq and proteomic technologies. Translational clinical studies focus on using specific biologic targeting agents to treat these disorders.
