Research Interest

Transplant biology and the development of novel therapeutics and treatment approaches for myelodysplastic syndrome and leukemia. My research in transplant biology includes improving stem cell mobilization and understanding and improving treatment of graft-versus-host disease. My clinical research interest includes hematologic malignancies such as MDS, AML and CLL and their treatment by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and the development of new treatment approaches.
