Focus of Work

Bio

Research in the Crispino laboratory is focused on investigating the regulatory mechanisms governing normal and malignant blood cell development, with an emphasis on understanding the growth of erythroid cells (red blood cells) and megakaryocytes (platelet-producing cells). In addition, the group has a major interest in learning how changes in normal essential regulatory molecules lead to human blood diseases, including acute leukemias and myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs).

In addition, the group has a major interest in learning how changes in normal essential regulatory molecules lead to human blood diseases, including acute leukemias and myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs). The lab seeks to make seminal basic science discoveries while simultaneously translating these discoveries in ways that will benefit patients with hematologic malignancies.[Shorten text]
