Pediatric Hematology-Oncology
Procedures and Research
Use of biomarkers of aging for the early identification of treatment-related morbidities Stemming from combined training in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, I have developed clinical and research interests in providing and improving cancer care for adolescents and young adults (AYAs) as well as survivors of childhood, adolescent, and young adult cancers. Supported by a St. Baldrick’s Fellowship and using analyses of administrative databases, I have examined the patterns of healthcare usage among survivors to characterize emerging chronic treatment-related morbidities. Building on this work with the support of an NCTraCS career development award, I have plans to identify biomarkers predictive of these morbidities through prospective cohort studies.
