Kavita Bisht

I am a 4th year postdoctoral scientist, and my postdoctoral research is focused on understanding the pathology of anemia of inflammation and improving stem cell mobilization and transplantation. I published my postdoctoral work in Blood Advances, Frontiers in Immunology, Experimental Hematology and Leukemia. My recently published work in Frontiers in Immunology showed for the first time that bacterial lipopolysaccharides suppress medullary erythropoiesis by causing the collapse of erythroblastic islands, which results in dramatically reduced numbers of erythroblasts in the bone marrow. I was selected for a podium presentation to present this work at the 2016 ASH meeting and received an abstract achievement award. I also devised first inflight imaging flow cytometry to count erythroblastic islands in the bone marrow. My research project on Oncostatin M as a novel retention factor for hematopoietic stem cell has recently been accepted by ‘Leukemia’ journal for publication.
