Beth_Psaila

Beth will work with Adam Mead and Irene Roberts on the role of megakaryocytes in myelofibrosis (MF), using single cell profiling to study the molecular mechanisms underlying abnormal megakaryopoiesis in MF and the pathways by which megakaryocytes contribute to bone marrow fibrosis.
 
She will spend the first 2 years of her Fellowship working in David Bodine's lab at the National Human Genome Research Institute at the NIH, USA.  Beth will also collaborate with Shuomo Bhattacharya (Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, Oxford) to use high-throughput screening of molecules that regulate collagen fibrosis.
