Chris did his undergraduate studies in biology at the University of Chicago, and graduate medical studies at the University of Sydney. He is currently a Fellow in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at UCLA and is pursuing a PhD through the UCLA Special Training in Advanced Research (STAR) Program. Chris’s project focuses on cellular and molecular aspects of human immune development within the bone marrow and thymus, with a particular interest in the immunologic basis of hematologic malignancies. His overall goal is to develop novel approaches to modulate immune development to improve cellular therapies, including stem cell transplantation.
