I am a board-certified medical oncologist with a clinical and research focus on bone marrow failure syndromes, including myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and aplastic anemia. Because these conditions can sometimes turn into acute leukemia, I also have experience in the treatment of acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). My research interests also include the study of “therapy-related” MDS and leukemia, which can develop after treatment with radiation or chemotherapy for another cancer.
I feel fortunate to be at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center where we have a team approach to managing bone marrow failure syndromes. I work with pathologists who are dedicated to the study and review of bone marrow samples, and a stem cell transplant program that offers a full range of stem cell transplant options, including stem cell transplants for people with marrow diseases up to the age of 70.
