Daniel T. Starczynowski, PhD, received his PhD in Molecular Biology from Boston University. He studied the NF-kB family of transcription factors and their role in B-cell lymphomas. During his postdoctoral fellowship at the BC Cancer Research Center, Dr. Starczynowski identified and characterized novel candidate genes in Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

Following his postdoctoral training, Dr. Starczynowski joined the faculty at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and at the University of Cincinnati as an Assistant Professor. Dr. Starczynowski’s laboratory is continuing to investigate the molecular and cellular basis of MDS. The current objective of his research program is to understand the contribution of MDS-associated miRNAs and their targeted genes to the pathogenesis of MDS and progression to AML. He hopes that understanding some of the molecular causes of MDS will enhance our insight into the biology of MDS, and provide novel targeted therapies.
