Research & Publications
Shilpa Hattangadi has an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science undergraduate degree from MIT. Her postdoctoral work at the Whitehead Institute in Harvey Lodish's lab spurred an interest in applying fundamental molecular biology to intriguing concenpts in red blood cell development. Her initial work on the dynamics of chromatin modifications during erythroid transcription transformed into a focus on erythroid nuclear development. Our laboratory now centers on the dynamics of chromatin during normal terminal erythroid differentiation, specifically chromatin condensation and enucleation, which is specific to mammalian red cell development, as well as the role of certain chromatin modifiers on erythroid nuclear development in diseases such as myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
