  • Molecular Biology and Cancer Genetics

General Research Interest

Non-coding RNAs in normal hematopoiesis and leukemias

Research Description

My laboratory is interested in discovering the role of non-coding RNAs in normal Blood formation and how these RNAs may cooperate with other protein coding genes during leukemogenesis
