Professional Bio

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

Director, Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplantation

Research Bio

Dr. Andolina is interested in improving the outcome for children with cancer through offering enrollment on multi-institutional clinical trials through the Children's Oncology Group (COG) and Pediatric Blood and Marrow Tissue Consortium (PBMTC).



Dr. Andolina has a particular interest in bone marrow transplantation using haploidentical donors. Haploidentical donors are a half match to the patient and include parents, and thus allow nearly all patients in need of a transplant to have an available donor.

Other research interests include evaluating donor anti-HLA antibodies and patient outcome after bone marrow transplant, as well as evaluating reduced-intensity conditioning regimens for children with malignant and non-malignant diseases, especially sickle cell anemia.

Dr. Andolina also performs laboratory research including the study of the gene expression profile of acute lymphoblastic leukemia cells, specifically evaluating gene expression changes which may confer survival advantages post-allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
