I am an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine with an appointment in the Division of Hematology.  During the past eleven years at OSU I became fully engaged in blood cancer research and genetic alterations of cancer cells and development of targeted therapies. My two major areas of research interest are: 1) Epigenetic alterations of cancer cells and 2) Development of experimental therapeutics for hematological disease. My research has been consistently funded by intramural and extramural sponsor agencies including the American Cancer Society, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Department of Defense, and the NIH. I foster teaching of quality writing, grant preparation and scientific method to all of my trainees. I believe my experiences thus far put me in the position to effectively mentor a wide range of trainees and provide them with the opportunities necessary to further their careers.
