From a clinical trial standpoint, I am interested in combining novel small molecule inhibitors with conventional chemotherapy. From a population-based standpoint, I am conducting a retrospective analysis of outcomes in AML patients at Stanford who have undergone hematopoietic cell transplantation, as well as a collaborative project with the Cancer Prevention Institute of California analyzing outcomes in AML patients with data from the Surveillance and Epidemiology End Results (SEER).
