Research Interest

The overarching goal of my research is to understand the function of telomerase in stem cell regulation, bone marrow failure, aging and cancer. My laboratory uses genomewide methods to uncover alterations that drive cellular failure upon critical telomere dysfunction, using human pluripotent cells as a model. We combine in vitro biochemical and mechanistic studies with our ability to generate and differentiate pluripotent cell to determine the events that lead form telomere dysfunction to human disease.
