Summary

  • I am a pediatric hematologist/oncologist and stem cell transplanter with a particular interest in bone marrow failure disorders, both inherited and acquired. I specifically care for patients with acquired aplastic anemia, Diamond Blackfan anemia, Fanconi anemia, Shwachman Diamond syndrome and other such disorders. I am Head of the Bone Marrow Failure Program at Cohen Children's Medical Center. The goal of my long-standing research project has been to promote the understanding of Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA), a rare, inherited bone marrow failure syndrome, by studying the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and genetics of the syndrome. As such, I established the Diamond Blackfan Anemia Registry (DBAR) of North America in 1991 and to date there are over 750 patients enrolled, making this the largest of all the DBA registries. The DBAR is in its 14th year of funding from the National Institutes of Health/National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. These data along with the DBA DNA Biorepository have been instrumental in the discovery of 11 of the 23 confirmed DBA genes. I have been the Director of the DBAR since its inception and am also Director of the Comprehensive DBA Clinical Care Center at Cohen Children’s Medical Center. As such I am referred patients from throughout the United States, Canada and from abroad. I am also presently the Principal Investigator of 3 Phase I/II clinical trials for DBA and anticipate more trials in the future.
