Research Abstract

My research interests focus on novel therapies for leukemia and transplantation. A particular area of specialty is cord blood transplantation for those patients who do not have matched related or unrelated donors. We are currently performing sequential (double) cord blood transplantation in adults. Other areas of interest are treatment of acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoid leukemia, using novel therapies.
