    Research Interests
    Dr. Stiles will supervise and direct training of trainees in genomics and application in hemoglobinopathies research. He will also serve as program mentor and instructor. He will devote his experience in molecular biology and genomics to this training. Dr. Stiles investigates immuno-pathogenesis of sickle cell disease (SCD) as it relates to nutrition in murine SCD models and in SCD patients with Drs. Hibbert, Gee, and Buchanan at Morehouse School of Medicine. Dr. Stiles has over 20 years of experience utilizing genomic approaches in studying murine models of various host-parasite interactions including malaria, leishmaniasis, and trypanosomiasis in Africa. He has established collaborative research and training programs with the Noguchi Memorial Medical Research Institute at the University of Ghana Medical School. Dr. Stiles is the director of the Research Integrity course offered to the Graduate Biomedical Science Ph.D. program. He also participates in international research training sponsored by the Fogarty International Center’s Minority International Health Disparities Research Training Program (FIC/MHIRT) annually. Dr. Stiles earned his undergraduate degree from University of Ghana (1984), and his Doctor of Philosophy degree in Molecular Biology from University of Salford UK (1990). Dr. Stiles completed 2 postdoctoral research fellowships in Molecular Parasitology at the University of Laval, Quebec, Canada and the University of Mississippi Medical Center Jackson, MS, USA.
