earned his B.S. from the University of Maryland in December 1998 and he started in our laboratory in the spring of 1999. He initially worked with Kay-Uwe Wagner on the deletion of the bcl-x gene in the hematopoietic system and they could demonstrate that Bcl-x is a essential for mature erythrocytes but not for immature erthrocytes. Subsequently, Greg has studied the role of Bcl-x on ovarian function using experimental mouse genetics. In collaboration with Keiko Miyoshi and Karen Cui, Greg isolated and characterized the Stat3/5 locus in the mouse genome. Those three scientists went on to generate mice in which this locus can be inactivated in specific cell types and at defined time points.
Greg left the lab in 2002 to pursue an M.D./Ph.D. at Wake Forest University
in Wiston-Salem, North Carolina. He just completed his first two years in Medical school and is now in the lab working on the Ph.D. part.
