Bone Marrow Transplants
- BSc Biochemistry from the University of London
- MBBS from the University of London
- PhD from the University of London
His research work has focused on immunotherapy – using immune cells to prevent infections and leukaemic relapse after stem cell transplant.
He is currently leading two major clinical trials in these approaches with two more studies planned. In parallel with this, with his colleagues on the BMT Unit at GOSH, he has pioneered novel antibody-based conditioning regimens for children with genetic diseases of the immune system to reduce the need for intensive chemotherapy before bone marrow transplant.
