WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a physician and scientist, my ultimate goal is to translate research findings from bench to beside to improve patient care. I focus my research and clinical work on treating blood and bone marrow cancers. Most of the patients in my clinic are blood and bone marrow transplant patients and patients with plasma cell diseases such as multiple myeloma, amyloidosis, POEMS syndrome, and Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia. The research interests in my lab are on the development of new approaches to enhance hematopoietic stem cell engraftment and reconstitution following blood and bone marrow transplant.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My lab research is focused on two areas. The first area is to define the genes and molecules in the bone marrow stem cells and in the bone marrow micro-environment that regulate hematopoietic stem cell function and number. We are particularly interested in the roles of CXCR4 and Pim kinases in hematopoiesis. The second area of my research is to identify molecules and pathways that can be used as biomarkers for treatment responses and as therapeutic targets for the treatment of multiple myeloma.
