Research Summary/In Plain Language

Research in Plain Language

Red blood cells deliver oxygen from the lungs to the other body tissues. Diseases associated with these cells affect millions of people. We see research subjects in the clinic and use laboratory and computer tools to more clearly understand how red blood cells form and maintain themselves. Computationally intensive techniques allow us to work with the huge amount of biological data that describe interactions of molecules and the workings of genes. We then match our study results with clinical data to create a basis for disease prevention and the development of new therapies for anemia.
