JCCC SeminarDr. Daniel Starczynowski

Presented by:
Daniel Starczynowski, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Division of Experimental Hematology and Cancer Biology Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center

Research projects in the laboratory rely on a variety of cellular, molecular, biochemical, and mouse genetic approaches to evaluate novel genes and singling pathways implicated in MDS and AML. Dr. Starczynowski’s research program evaluates the role of the innate immune pathway in normal HSC and in MDS. Broader initiatives involve characterizing novel candidate genes (including miRNAs) relevant to MDS, dissecting molecular and cellular alterations in MDS (and related hematologic malignancies) and attempting to identify novel therapeutics.
