Stephanie Halene MD, PhD
Assistant Professor of Medicine (Hematology)
Hematopoiesis; Myeloid differentiation; Leukemia; Myelodysplasia
Dr. Halene's laboratory studies hematopoiesis and myelopoiesis and in particular how abnormalities of the hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells lead to diseases with abnormal numbers and function of blood cells. The laboratory uses primary patient cells and murine models to study mechanisms of disease leading to myelodysplasia and acute myeloid leukemia with the ultimate goal to contribute to the development of novel treatments.
