Specialties and clinical expertise
The branch of medicine a provider practices and their areas of focus
I am a medical oncologist and stem-cell transplant expert who specializes in treating patients with lymphomas and other blood disorders. My clinical trial work focuses on testing novel agents for the treatment of leukemia and lymphoma, with a particular focus on chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). I also study the clinical outcomes of patients who have already been treated. My goal is to identify patient- or disease-specific characteristics that can help us understand the behavior of a disease and predict its responsiveness to different treatments. One particular area of interest is the epidemiology of hematologic neoplasms (abnormal growth in blood-forming tissue). In 2013, I co-authored a study that found a correlation between certain types of allergies and blood cancers.
