Profile
ABOUT ME

My entire career has been in the care of patients with immunologic disorders, including allergic diseases and genetic defects of the immune system. I currently head the Duke University Immune Deficiency Foundation Primary Immunodeficiency Disease Center of Excellence. This Center sees a large number of patients with these disorders. Developing ideal treatments for these conditions, particularly severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), has been a priority. We have treated more infants with SCID than any other center in the world – and with the highest success rate. I consider it a privilege to care for these patients.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on patients with genetic defects in the immune system. Over the past three decades I have been investigating severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID or “bubble boy disease”) and have performed hematopoietic stem cell transplants in 176 SCID infants without pre-transplant chemotherapy -- 133 (76 percent) survive for up to 32 years post-transplantation. I observed a superior survival rate (92.6 percent) for infants transplanted in the first 3.5 months of life, leading to newborn screening for this condition.
