Research Bio


The Steiner laboratory utilizes genomics techniques to study the molecular mechanisms underlying erythroid maturation and development. The laboratory is particularly interested in studying how specific DNA sequences, DNA binding proteins, and chromatin structure interact during normal erythropoiesis. The laboratory is also interested in studying how those interactions are perturbed in disease states.
