Professional Summary:

As a pediatric hematologist-oncologist, I care for children from birth through age 21 who have blood disorders or cancers. This includes care for children with illnesses such as anemia, platelet problems, white blood cell abnormalities, bleeding disorders, leukemias, lymphomas, kidney and liver tumors and other cancers. I diagnose these illnesses and develop treatment plans, often in collaboration with physicians from other specialties such as surgery and radiation oncology. I manage patients who are receiving care at the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital and at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

In addition, I have a special focus on pediatric blood and marrow transplantation. I transplant children with malignant and non-malignant disorders, performing both autologous (self) and allogeneic (donor other than the patient) transplants.

My research is clinical in nature. I participate in clinical trials through the Children’s Oncology Group, the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to childhood and adolescent cancer research. I also am the local principal investigator on several pediatric transplant trials through the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium, the Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network and other multi-institutional trials.

I am the clinical director of the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Program located at Roswell Park. I have also served as the chair of the Institutional Review Board at the institute for over a decade.

I am extensively involved with medical education, providing lectures on pediatric hematology and oncology on a regular basis to University at Buffalo third-year medical students and pediatric residents and fellows.
