- Research Summary
- My interest is in understanding how stem cell biology can be used to develop more effective therapies for blood diseases and cancer.
A study comparing how blood stem cells and leukemia cells consume nutrients found that cancer cells are far less tolerant to shifts in their energy supply than their normal counterparts. The results suggest that there could be ways to target leukemia metabolism so that cancer cells die but other cell types are undisturbed.

A new study by Harvard researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital indicates that "good" cells can become cancerous because of exposure to a "bad" environment within the body — similarly to the way a "good boy" may turn to crime when exposed to the pressures of life in a crime-ridden neighborhood.
