My Biography & Research


Dr. Myers received her medical degree from Case Western Reserve University and pursued training in pediatrics and hematology/oncology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. After completion of her postdoctoral training, she joined the faculty of the Division of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Immune Deficiency at Cincinnati Children’s within the UC Department of Pediatrics. Clinically she is focused in bone marrow failure and hematopoietic stem cell transplant for non-malignant diseases. She is currently the co-Director of the North American Shwachman Diamond Syndrome Registry and has ongoing clinical translational research in the fields of bone marrow failure and late effects of hematopoietic stem cell transplant.
