Summary
My care philosophy - Hematopoietic cell transplantation is a life saving procedure when personalized to each patient. I believe in each patient's right to make an informed decision regarding their treatment options based on the best available evidence that also meets with their own goals of care. Patients in my clinic will be offered novel clinical trial options as well in an effort to improve outcomes beyond the standard of care.

Research Summary

My research focuses on improving our patients' post-transplant toxicities, outcomes and long term effects. I am interested in studying means of manipulating the microbiome and their peptides in mitigating graft versus host disease and other transplant toxicities. 

Clinical Summary
