Current Studies

Clinical Research Projects: CLL and Indolent Lymphoma
Site PI for CLL & Indolent Lymphoma Investigator Initiated and sponsored trials (7 trials with active patients)
Participate in multi-center retrospective analysis of outcomes for CLL pts treated with the novel kinase and BCL2 inhibitors (i.e. ibrutinib, idelalisib, venetoclax)
Translational Research Projects: Understanding Resistance & Toxicity to Targeted Therapeutics in CLL
Surface immunoglobulin (sIg) isotype and expression heterogeneity as a mechanism of disease variability and resistance in CLL
Changes in CLL immunophenotype and p-proteins as mechanism of resistance for pts treated in the PhI trial of lenalidomide plus plerixafor in rel/ref CLL
Increased SETα/β-ratio by qPCR as an adverse prognostic marker in CLL pts
Identifying mechanisms of bleeding toxicities in CLL patients on therapeutic BTK inhibitors
