    Research in Plain Language

    Dr. Rodgers conducts research on human blood diseases.  He also develops and validates experimental models that researchers can use to describe regulatory mechanisms in the normal and abnormal formation of blood cells.  This area of research contributes to the development of medications or genetic approaches to correct or compensate for abnormalities caused by diseases.  Another important aspect of his work focuses on finding ways to speed the translation of new research findings to preclinical or clinical study.

    He plans and conducts research on the molecular and cellular bases of inherited and acquired blood disorders, develops quantitative methods to describe how a disease is acting and how severe it is, and studies the ways and differences in how genes are expressed in developing and mature red blood cells.  He also studies the molecular basis of differences in ways that normal and diseased blood cells develop in bone marrow and the lymphatic system, and develops therapies for genetic blood disorders.​​
