Research Description
My research interests are in the clinicopathologic descriptions of hematologic neoplasms and in the development of therapeutic strategies to treat these disorders. Specific entities we have helped recognize include anaplastic large cell lymphoma, T-cell-rich B-cell lymphoma, and natural killer-like T-cell lymphoma/leukemia. Since the early 1980's, we have evaluated short course, dose intensive therapy (MEGA) for intermediate to high grade lymphomas, the use of high dose cytarabine consolidation in acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, and the role of transplantation in hematologic neoplasms. We actively participate in phase I-III trials through cooperative groups (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group and Children's Oncology Group) and with the pharmaceutical industry. We have an emphasis in studies evaluating novel agents directed at molecular pathways, immunotherapy, and transplantation.
