I’ve always been interested in cancer and immunity. My research interests include hematologic malignancies, animal models and the pathophysiology of leukemia.
My work aims to understand leukemia biology and to identify effective treatments for this disease. I have developed numerous mouse models of human leukemia and identified various signaling pathways that can be targeted for additional research. I’m also an environmental activist working to address climate change.
I have more than 28 years’ experience and began working at Cincinnati Children’s in 2003. My research has been published in various respected journals, including Cancer Cell, Stem Cells, Blood, Leukemia, Science Translational Medicine and Experimental Hematology.
