Research Interests

His research interests include refractory acute leukemia. He collaborates with a number of cooperative groups both in Canada and in North America. Locally he has helped identify a biomarker identifying patients who will be refractory to induction therapy and a drug that can improve the outcome of these patients. he is currently working on starting a trial using this biomarker and drug to better treat patients with refractory AML. he is currently the PI of the SIERRA trial for older patients w2ith refractory leukemia and has enrolled our first pt.
