Mitchell Geer is a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Benjamin Neel at NYU Langone. His major interest centers on “signaling”, the mechanisms by which cells receive and process input to bring about changes in their behavior.
During his doctoral training at the University of Birmingham, UK, he studied the role of the platelet inhibitory protein, G6b-B, in myeloproliferative neoplasms and platelet function. His work helped identify the mechanism by which G6b-B operates, and in collaboration with researchers at Boston Children’s Hospital, the importance of this protein in humans.
