Research:

My research focuses on developing combination therapies for the treatment of leukemia. My project has two components: understand the aberrant metabolism in Bcr-Abl+ leukemic cells and take advantage of these differences to develop combination therapies. I am currently working on mitochondrial inhibitors to eliminate leukemic cells in vitro and in vivo.
