Postdoctoral Fellow

William received his Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Pathology from the University of California, Los Angeles where he identified and subsequently investigated the ability of a synthetic fusion protein containing the intracellular signaling domain of the Thrombopoietin receptor to induce erythropoiesis from human hematopoietic and embryonic stem cells. Currently, he is working with collaborators from City of Hope to develop a novel dendrimer nanoparticle mediated approach to transiently manipulate gene expression during hematopoietic differentiation from human embryonic stem cells. William is also an aspiring singer/song writer but is definitely not quitting his day job anytime soon. He is also particularly fond of Puritan literature, art history, as well as traditional folk and Irish music, aside from the many other awesome things in life.
