Extensive Research Description

The focus of his clinical/translational research is the development of novel therapies for MDS, AML, and other hematologic malignancies. Dr. Zeidan is the principal investigator on several clinical trials in MDS, AML and other hematologic malignancies. Dr. Zeidan especially focuses on the use of immunotherapies (drugs that stimulate the patient's own immune system) including the immune checkpoint inhibitors to fight blood cancers.
