I work with you to design and implement a personalized plan of cancer care that balances your and your family’s needs, the characteristics of your disease and the leading-edge science and clinical trials offered at Fred Hutch.
Area of Clinical Practice
Leukemia, Myelodysplastic Syndrome and Myeloproliferative Neoplasms
I am both a hematologist-oncologist and a clinical researcher. Along with caring for you, I conduct research focused on hematologic (blood-based) malignancies — specifically, acute myeloid leukemia (AML), myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), polycythemia vera, essential thrombocythemia and myelofibrosis. My overarching research aim is to help adults with these diseases have better outcomes by developing and testing evidence-based therapies that are tailored to your unique needs as a patient. I design and conduct clinical trials testing novel care concepts for people with AML and MDS, and I use large databases to study systems issues on a broader scale, such as risk factors for toxicities from treatment.
