Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in the characterization and therapeutic targeting of cancer stem cells in human malignancies. Specifically I have been investigating antibody-specific approaches to therapeutically target leukemic stem cells in acute myeloid leukemia as well as targeting of cancer cells in other hematologic malignancies. This work has led to the identification and development of a monoclonal antibody targeting the anti-phagocytic signal CD47 for the treatment of human malignancies.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Seek to understand the molecular mechanism by which human telomerase (hTERT) promoter mutations contribute to the biology of tumor cells.
