The treatment and comprehensive care for children with leukemia and lymphoma, including acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), as well as the care for children with other cancers and blood diseases.

Pathology & Laboratory Medicine
My current research focuses on the molecular, genetic, and immunologic mechanisms that underlie leukemia and lymphoma development. Specifically, I’m studying which bone marrow stromal interactions influence the development and persistence of these diseases. Other interests include the role of chronic viruses in lymphoma development, and the genetic characteristics that influence diagnosis and treatment of pre-myeloid leukemias or myelodysplastic syndromes.

My research concentrates on the reciprocal interactions between the bone marrow microenvironment and hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), under both normal and leukemic conditions. My research efforts are largely translational in focus with the ultimate goal of therapeutically targeting the bone marrow microenvironment for the treatment of hematologic malignancies.
