Liz joined the Murphy Lab in the spring of 2014 when she was just a first year medical student at Boston University School of Medicine. With past experience in working with adult stem cells in San Francisco and an interest in the fields of hematology and oncology, she decided to pursue research at the CReM in the Murphy Lab. Liz is studying the roles that GDF-11 and GDF-15 play in megakaryocyte-erythroid progenitor development and the implications in hematopoiesis and disease.
In her spare time, Liz loves listening to music, trying food from all the diverse restaurants Boston has to offer, and attempting to cook. She loves traveling, hiking, and spending time outdoors in the sun. You can always find her in lab with a big smile on her face!
