My laboratory is interested in haematopoietic stem/progenitor cell biology and their dysregulation in bone marrow failure and haematologic cancer. We are investigating the transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms regulating haematopoietic stem/progenitor cells, myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) with the ultimate purpose of identifying more specific and less toxic treatment strategies for MDS and AML.
