My Biography & Research

Biography

As a doctor specializing in bone marrow transplantation, I enjoy forming long-term relationships with patients and their families and traveling with them on their journey.

Everyone’s path is different, and our team of doctors and nurses is committed to exceptional care. We deliver personalized treatments to each child and adolescent — one size fits no one!

I am honored to be president-elect of the American Society of Transplantation and Cellular Therapy, the professional society for bone marrow transplant specialists.

In my research, my colleagues and I focus on finding out what causes complications after bone marrow transplantation and determine better ways to fix these complications.

In my spare time, I enjoy supporting my daughter, a Cincinnati Rollergirl, at roller derby bouts.
