I have also studied the implications of lung injury after allogeneic stem cell or bone marrow transplantation (a procedure in which a person receives stem cells or bone marrow from a genetically similar, but not identical, donor) and among patients with a weakened immune system. Finally, I study holistic medical approaches to managing breathlessness, including acupuncture and yoga.
I am a long-time member of both the American Thoracic Society and the American College of Chest Physicians. In addition to writing more than 40 articles, book chapters, and abstracts, I have been invited to review for a number of our specialty’s key journals, including CHEST, Journal of Thoracic Oncology, Radiation Oncology, and Thorax. I have been honored to speak at a number of symposia around the country on a host of pulmonary-related topics.
