    The Link laboratory studies mechanisms that regulate normal and malignant hematopoiesis, with a long-term goal of improving care for patients with hematopoietic disorders. Current research is focused on three general areas: 1) characterizing the regulation of hematopoietic niches in the bone marrow under homeostatic and stress conditions; 2) defining the molecular pathogenesis and developing new therapies for acute leukemia; and 3) defining the molecular pathogenesis and developing new therapies for congenital neutropenia. Cutting edge genomic, transgenic, and imaging approaches are being used in this research.

    Clinical interests

    Bone marrow transplant, G-CSF receptor, congenital neutropenia, molecular mechanisms controlling hematopoietic cell proliferation; differentiation; and migration, granulocyte colony stimulating factor receptor signal transduction and biological activities, hematology, oncology, leukemia


    The Link laboratory emphasizes a collaborative, diverse, and inclusive research environment that places a priority on the career development of its trainees. I employ an individualized mentoring approach that is tailored to the trainees research experience and aptitude. I provide as many opportunities as possible for my trainees to pursue their scientific and professional goals, whatever they may be. I am the recipient of several awards for mentoring at Washington University.
