The role of the aged BM microenvironment in accelerating Dnmt3a mutant clonal hematopoiesis

June 25, 2020

I am a PhD candidate in my second year of graduate study in the Trowbridge Laboratory at JAX. My current research interests involve identifying genes, molecules, and networks that modulate the expansion of clonal hematopoiesis in the aging bone marrow microenvironment. I am particularly excited to work in this field of research because I am interested in helping an aging population. With the growing population of elderly individuals worldwide, preventative strategies to reduce aging-associated diseases are urgently needed.

Outside of the lab, I enjoy exploring Acadia national park, running, painting and trivia nights, and taking care of my house plants!
