My research is focused on exploring genetic and epigenetic mechanisms, including the small non-coding microRNAs (miRs,) that control normal hematopoiesis and are deregulated in leukemias. Based on genome-wide expression analysis of miRs in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), I have identified a miR signature that is deregulated in AML patients. I am continuing the exploration of role(s) these miRs play in the onset and/or progression of AML.
A miR24-MKP7-MAPK network regulates myeloid cell proliferation and differentiation.
