My lab is interested in the impact of mechanisms of programmed cell death on the bone marrow microenvironment and progression to bone marrow failure and transformation to leukemia. As many cell death proteins reside at the mitochondria, we are also interested in how these cell death genes modulate mitochondrial structure and function and direct metabolic reprogramming in times of stress.
