I am a board-certified hematologist and oncologist specializing in the use of stem cell transplantation to treat patients with hematologic malignancies (cancers that arise from blood cells). I work as part of a multidisciplinary team of transplantation specialists who treat patients with these diseases.
As a clinical researcher, my work focuses on identifying risk factors associated with relapse after allogeneic stem cell transplantation for myelodysplastic syndrome and acute muyelogenous leukemia. Together with my colleagues I am developing protocols for early post-transplant intervention to prevent relapse.
