Research Profile

Dr. Fletcher’s major effort is focused on biomedical research using transposons as vehicles to facilitate long-term gene expression following non-viral gene delivery. This approach has been used to treat various conditions in animal models including hemophilia, pulmonary hypertension and acute graft rejection. Recent work focuses on targeting tumor vasculature in solid tumors.

Dr. Fletcher’s clinical activities include attending the inpatient hematology consultation service at Shands Hospital and outpatient clinical hematology and follow-up at both the Shands Hospital and the Malcom Randall Veterans Administration Medical Center.
