When I'm in the Lab: I write a lot of grants and papers, and borrow space on people’s benches to do some experiments. I spend part of my time at Children’s Medical Center caring for children with cancer and blood disorders. My major interest is in bridging the gap between the clinic and the lab.

When I'm not in the Lab: I enjoy running, cycling, camping, reading, and most of all spending time with my wife and son.
