Patient Care Bio

Our adult blood and marrow transplantation/leukemia service uses a team-based approach to care for our patients. I work with a great lineup of physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, patient care technicians and administrative assistants. Together, we achieve excellence for our patients.



I am a scientist by heart and a physician by training. During my residency, I cared for young patients with cancer, including acute leukemia, and their stories led to my area of focus. My research interests are bone marrow cancers and blood and marrow stem cell transplantation. My clinical practice is the direct application to this research. My goal is to be able to apply what I learn in the lab to the care of my patients in our clinic.
