AMKL is a rare leukemia characterized by the improper development of megakaryocytes. In neonates, AMKL is most often caused by a genetic translocation resulting in the RBM15-MKL1 fusion protein. Madeline's work focuses on the effect of this fusion protein on normal and malignant hematopoiesis with the goal of elucidating the mechanism by which it promotes leukemogenesis.
