The epigenetic regulation of hematopoietic stem cell function and the impact of mutations in the epigenetic machinery in hematopoietic disease


As mentor, I will not simply lead by example, but instead I will be involved in my mentee’s development. I will do this by being mindful of the mentee’s future by fostering skill sets that are valuable not only to their present work but also to their future careers. As a mentor, I seek to make a contribution to the development of the whole person. Each mentee is different and different goals require different skills, but I will aspire to help you develop certain universal skills—recognizing opportunities, asking questions, acknowledging shortcomings, and communicating effectively. 

I am committed to continuing to pursue efforts to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion in our lab and on campus in general.  My commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in science and academia is grounded in personal experience, years of leadership and teaching, and my commitment to training the next generation of scientists. I believe that science / medical education has an essential role in cultivating a biomedical workforce to meet the needs of our diverse communities.
