What does the appointment mean to you?

Being appointed docent inspires me to continue working with our current exciting research projects.

What is your research about?

My research focuses on how to implement modern genetic methods in the clinical care of patients with the disease myelodysplastic syndrome. A particular focus is on understanding how the genetic methods can be used on patients that are undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplantation.

What are your upcoming plans?

I will be initiating Part 2 of the clinical trial NMDSG14B, where we test whether the use of individualized genetic markers can lead to fewer relapses after transplantation.
