Clinical Professor, Pediatrics - Stem Cell Transplantation
Bio I did my training in Pediatrics and Hematology/ Oncology at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles where I was an attending physician for 15 years.. I joined Stanford University in 2015 as a clinical attending in the Division of Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine. My areas of clinical expertise have been in the areas of transplantation for immune deficiencies and immune reconstitution post HSCT. I am very interested in cellular therapies as a treatment modality for rare genetic diseases. I currently am the PI for several gene therapy trials at Stanford for various disorders including Adrenoleukodystrophy, Sickle Cell Anemia, Thalassemia and Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency. My other main areas of research have been in the neurocognitive function post HSCT. I have been involved with several national committees addressing the late effects of HSCT within the ASBMT and COG.
