I have developed an approach to science that utilizes multiple stem cell-based platforms to answer basic biological questions and combat human disease. My current research portfolio is a direct reflection of my evolution as a scientist in which my early studies of hematopoietic development led to the generation of useful tools and reagents as well as methodologies and insights that synergized into a potent platform in the emerging and rapidly expanding field of pluripotent stem cell biology. My group is composed of dynamic and passionate young researchers and together we have impacted the following areas of investigation:
1.) Developmental hematopoiesis
2.) The generation, culture, and directed differentiation of pluripotent stem cells
3.) Pluripotent stem cell-based modeling of hematopoiesis: a Platform for Production of Transfusable Human Blood Cells
4.) Pluripotent Stem Cell Modeling of Human Disease: The ‘Clinical Trial in a Test Tube’: Sickle Cell Anemia; Amyloidosis
