Research & Publications
I am interested in understanding the role the bone marrow microenvironment on hematopoietic progenitor cell fate.
Extensive Research Description
Currently, I work on understanding extrinsic mechanisms that underly hematopoietic progenitor cell fate decisions. I have developed a novel method for time-lapse microscopy of bipotent progenitors dividing and committing to two potential lineages. I'm also interested in developing 3D engineered in vitro cell culture models to further investigate spatial regulation between cells of the bone marrow microenvironment.
I also study the function of specific domains within a co-transcriptional activator during megakaryocytopoiesis.
