Biography & Affiliation

Biography

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 investigates the molecular and cellular basis of hematologic malignancies with the goal to advance novel therapeutic strategies.
