Personal profile

Research Interests

Stem Cell Transplantation for Pediatric diseases Minimal residual disease in leukemia Neuroblastoma and its treatment Stem Cell differentiation Tumor vaccines.

I have been involved in Clinical research for Neuroblastoma and stem cell transplantation. I have also for the past 26 year have a laboratory that was focused on several projects such as: 1. Minimal Residual Disease in leukemia and neuroblastoma using WT1 gene as a marker. 2. Hematopoietic stem cell differentiation primarily on neural differentiation. 3. The use of RT-PCR to assess chimerism post transplant. 4. Stem cell processing and storage. 5. neuroblastoma tumor stem cell identification and its role in disease development.

My clinical focus has been related to Hematopoietic Stem Cell transplantation both autologous and allogeneic. I have also developed and participate at the national level in the development of therapeutic protocols for neuroblastoma , leukemia and lymphoma at the former Pediatric Oncology group and the Children's Oncology Group. Most recently I have been the Institutional PI for the Pediatric Immune Deficiency consortium developing protocols for the transplant of patients affected with immune deficiency disorders.
