Area of Interest

My clinical research interest is hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) for sickle cell disease and late effects following HCT. I currently am a co-principal investigator of a multi-center study evaluating the safety and efficacy of using a reduced intensity conditioning regimen in children with varying severity and genotype who are receiving a matched sibling donor bone marrow transplant. Through this study, we will also longitudinally assessing sickle cell related cerebrovascular disease, sickle cell related nephropathy, and health related quality of life. In addition, our program has several other transplant protocols for patients who have sickle cell disease. Additionally, I have a clinical interest in late effects that occur after HCT and hope one day to be able to develop a specific multidisciplinary HCT Late Effects/Survivorship clinic.
