Research Interests

My expertise is in general Hematology-Oncology and my research interests focus on stem cell biology. I have focused on biology of engraftment in non-myeloablative and minimally myeloablative syngeneic and allogeneic murine models. I have evaluated a number of factors related to optimal engraftment including cell dose, timing of stem cell infusion, degree of MHC compatibility, and variations in preparative regimens. I have a clinical interest in the application of minimal ablation/cellular immunotherapy approaches to a variety of different diseases. I have accomplished clinical studies in other general oncology areas including head and neck cancer, germ cell cancers, as well as hematologic malignancies.

I am currently on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry and the Journal of Intensive Care Medicine. I have served as Program Author and Associate Editor-Hematology Section for the Medical Knowledge Self Assessment Program (MKSAP) and Section Editor-Hematology for Irwin and Rippe’s Intensive Care Medicine. My ASCO Education Committee work has included Leader for the Hematologic Malignancies track and Member of the Clinical Therapeutics and Transplantation tracks.
