Research Interests

Recently, I collaborated with Jose Cancelas (CCHMC) and Carolyn Lutzko (CCHMC) to generate iPSC from SCN patients, and to clearly demonstrate the role of mutant-neutrophil elastase in the pathogenesis of SCN.  We are currently focused upon dissecting the transcriptional and epigenetic programming engendered by both normal and SCN-mutant Gfi1. To this end we have generated deep single cell RNA Seq (scRNA Seq) data sets from bone marrow stem/progenitor cells, and have collaborated with Nathan Salomonis...
