Responsibilities & Activities

The NIDDK Hematology program supports research on Hematopoietic Stem Cells and their differentiation into blood cells. In particular, my portfolio includes developmental hematopoiesis, hematopoietic stem cell self-renewal and lineage commitment, epigenetics of hematopoiesis and terminal erythropoiesis, and bone marrow failure and myelodysplastic syndromes. I also oversee the Centers of Excellence in Molecular Hematology (U54 grants), Hematology Training and Career Development, and some hematology conference grants.

Research Programs

Erythropoiesis & Hemoglobin
The molecular and cellular biological pathways involved in erythroid cell differentiation.

Hematology Centers Program
Designed to increase access to critical research resources and collaboration in the national multidisciplinary research effort to combat nonmalignant hematologic diseases and to study normal hematopoiesis.

Hematology HIV/AIDS
Studies of HIV-associated hematologic dysfunction.

Hematopoiesis & Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology
The basic cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the production and function of blood cells.
