Personal Statement

As a physician, I treat patients with variety of hematologic malignancies who are in need of stem cell transplants. Achieving the best treatment outcome is the goal I have for all my patients. I firmly believe that the heartfelt concerns about the wellbeing of my patients and their family enhance the care and treatment experience.   
 
It takes a village to achieve the best care of patients in their battle against complicated blood disorders. I am privileged to work in a world-class medical institution, which not only assures a multidisciplinary approach for patient treatment, but also guarantees every aspect of related medical services needed to ensure the highest quality of care.
 

With a rich background in both basic and clinical research, I have a unique perspective on how scientists and physicians are working tireless together to find the best treatment options for our patients. My research focus is on immunotherapies, particularly on genetically-engineered T-cell therapies to treat cancer and adoptive T-cell therapies to treat viral infections following hematopoietic stem cell transplant. I also focus on developing new transplant conditioning regimens to limit the toxicities from allogeneic stem cell transplantation.
