Dr. Sankaran is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital, where his laboratory uses human genetics to better understand hematopoiesis and how it goes awry in human disease. In particular, he seeks to gain molecular insight into how hematopoiesis varies in humans both in health and disease, and to develop improved therapies for a variety of blood disorders. He completed his residency and clinical fellowship at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital, and his postdoctoral studies at the Whitehead and Broad Institutes.
