I have extensive experience conducting clinical outcomes research related to blood and marrow transplantation (BMT). I have over 20 years of experience with inter- and intra-programmatic collaborative clinical and translational research to identify, understand and quantify the risk of adverse outcomes and long-term prognosis in hematologic malignancy patients treated with BMT. My research has investigated outcomes such as graft-versus-host disease, osteoporosis, chemotherapy-associated toxicity, infections and financial burden, as well as the impact of demographic and sociological factors such as age, obesity, place of residence, race, and socioeconomic status, on long-term prognosis after therapy with BMT. I have co-led multi-center, multi-disciplinary projects including:1) recipient and donor genetic susceptibility to transplant-related mortality after unrelated donor BMT, 2) immunophenotyping to detect minimal residual disease in myeloma patients treated on a 3-arm randomized controlled trial, 3) genetic susceptibility to AML, ALL and MDS. I have extensive experience leading and working as part of a variety of multidisciplinary teams on long-term projects involving complex data sources and structures. My teaching experience includes guest lectures on topics spanning ethical conduct of research, clinical epidemiology, blood & marrow transplant, and specific research projects, as well as one-on-one mentoring of students from all levels, including high school, college, graduate school, medical school, residency, clinical and graduate post-doc fellowships.
