Cancer Focus

My primary focus is managing patients post autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants. I perform bone marrow biopsies and assist with bone marrow harvests. I also work closely with the physicians to manage chronic graft versus host disease and am excited for the continued development of our long term follow up clinic. In addition to transplant, I work with the HCTT program in treating CAR-T cell therapy adult patients.
