Immunobiology of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and macrophage function in innate immunity and blood cancer development
We develop novel cellular therapies for the treatment of blood cancer and use of bone marrow stem cells in regenerative medicine. One goal is to prevent and treat graft versus host disease and other post-transplant immunological complications. I collaborate extensively with many investigators studying the potential of cellular therapy in diverse pre-clinical models ,with the goal to translate discoveries into clinical trials, including for hematological malignancies. My research also focuses on the role of macrophages in the microenvironment of multiple myeloma, a cancer that forms in bone marrow plasma cells.
