Research Summary

My research interests include management of malignant hematology conditions such as acute leukemias (focus on treatment of adults with ALL and AML patients with FLT-3 mutations), myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and myeloprolipherative neoplasms (MPN) as well as bone marrow failure (aplastic anemia) and clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP). I am currently serving as a Yale principle investigator for a number of clinical studies including industry-sponsored, cooperative group and investigator initiated trials looking at the efficacy of different novel agents for patients with malignant hematological conditions who otherwise have limited treatment options. I participate in hematology group of the Yale University Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy and Effectiveness Research (COPPER) Center to study myeloid neoplasms with special interest in MPN.
