Our research is focused on three areas. 1) Leukemogenesis with an emphasis on leukemic stem cells. 2) Neutrophil biology with an emphasis on neutrophil development and trafficking. 3) Angiogenesis with an emphasis on the role of endothelial progenitors and their stimulation of post-natal angiogenesis. We have a translantional trial in which we are testing the hypothesis that mobilization of endothelial progenitors will improve blood flow in patients with critical limb ischemia secondary to peripheral vascular disease.
