My research focuses on the use of genetic approaches to decipher mechanisms which regulate blood cells in normal development and disease. This involves in vitro and in vivo model systems which can be manipulated to understand how genes such as transcription factors, signaling molecules and cell receptors control these processes.

By integrating fundamental biology with translational approaches using genomics and chemical biology, I aim to develop a strong basis for the understanding of blood development and disease, to allow precision medicine approaches for rational drug design.My research interests are:The control of haemopoietic stem cells and blood cell development.The role of genes in blood cell development and function in health and disease.The role of transcription factors in the development of the immune system and leukaemia.The role of signaling molecules and receptors in control of blood cell production and development of myeloproliferative disorders.The mechanisms which underly blood cancer development.The mechanisms which determine how blood cancers respond to treatment.
