Biography

While the doctor-patient relationship is one of potential intensity and privacy, the best patient care comes from teamwork, which values all who contribute to achieving high-quality care with compassion. Providing patients and their families with the knowledge and means to be partners in care is one of my key roles as a physician.

When a patient is diagnosed with a blood cancer or chronic blood condition, it is often the start of a new journey that will be the beginning of great change. Walking with patients through this journey from start to finish, and offering therapy and guidance along the way, is a source of professional and personal satisfaction for me. Hematology/oncology is a field where clinical and basic research can be rapidly applied to improve outcomes and quality of life.

I grew up in the Midwest, but have lived in Rochester since I began my post-doctoral medical training. My association with Strong, the University of Rochester and the people in our community and surrounding areas has enriched my life. I feel privileged to work in such a wonderful environment. I have expertise in novel therapies for acute myeloid leukemia, stem cell mobilization and homing, as well as stem cell transplantation.

Conditions I Treat

- Leukemia, all types
- Myeloproliferative disorders
- Myelodysplastic syndromes
- Multiple myeloma
- Stem cell transplantation

Research

Effects of oxygen metabolites/chemokines on hematopoietic stem cell expansion and preservation.

Effects of hematopoietic growth factors and inhibitors on AML blast proliferation (correlative clinical studies)

Effects of hematopoietic stem cell adhesion on marrow stromal cell cytokine production.

Role of signal transduction inhibition in treatment of acute myelogenous leukemia/myelodysplasia.

Characterization of mobilized peripheral blood stem cells
