Miguel-Angel Perales, MD -- Deputy Chief, Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Service; Director, Adult Bone Marrow Transplantation Fellowship Program

I am a board-certified medical oncologist with expertise in donor-derived hematopoietic (blood-forming) stem cell transplantation. Hematopoietic stem cells from a donor other than the patient can cure many patients who have diseases of the blood and bone marrow, including leukemias and lymphomas. The donor stem cells can come from different sources (related or unrelated donors, and bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood units) and can be modified in different ways before transplantation to enhance their effectiveness.

Along with colleagues here, I am participating in a number of studies designed to improve outcomes in patients undergoing stem cell transplantation, including finding ways to lower the risk of complications, relapse, and graft-versus-host disease. In particular, I am leading a clinical trial in patients who have advanced Hodgkin lymphoma; the goal of the trial is to determine the safest way to perform a transplant using stem cells from a donor in patients with relapsed Hodgkin lymphoma.
