Aging is the most important prognostic factor associated with the development of many cancers including leukemias mediated by the oncogene Bcr-Abl.  My research focuses on understanding how aging-associated declines in hematopoietic progenitor cell fitness promote Bcr-Abl mediated leukemogenesis.  Findings from these studies will reveal how the expression of an oncogene can correct or circumvent aging-associated defects in hematopoietic progenitor cells leading to the evolution of cancer.
