His areas of focus include treatment of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, where he manages both newly diagnosed patients as well as those requiring stem cell transplantation and treatment for a relapsed disease. His research focus includes the clinical investigation of lymphoma, where he aims to identify prognostic markers and designs clinical trials with novel agents for patients with relapsed disease. He is currently a member of the ECOG Lymphoma Core Committee and a regular participant in the CIBMTR lymphoma committee.
