Dr. Stamatoyannopoulos' research work spans a variety of areas of human genetics and genetic hematology including population genetics, impact of genetic counseling, the structure and function of hemoglobinopathies, and the genetics of thalassemia syndromes. In the last twenty years his research has focused on the analysis of the molecular and cellular control of globin gene switching. Another area of concentration is the development of gene therapy for hemoglobinopathies and other disorders that can be cured by gene transfer into stem cells.
