Extensive Research Description

Dr. Isufi's clinical work has been in the area of hematologic malignancies and autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation for these conditions. As part of the lymphoid malignancy and transplant teams, she developed a strong clinical interest in aggressive lymphomas. She has focused her efforts in treating patients with aggressive lymphomas as part of clinical trials and consolidating their response to treatment with either autologous or allogeneic transplant based on specifics of their disease. She has a research interest in early drug development in lymphoma, and has served as local PI for a variety of industry- and cooperative-group-sponsored lymphoma trials, including phase 1 trials.
