Research:

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 increases in inflammation reduce hematopoietic progenitor cell fitness and subsequently promote leukemogenesis mediated by Bcr-Abl, Ras, and Myc oncoproteins.  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.
