Research Description
I, along with multiple myeloma colleagues, established an interdisciplinary myeloma clinic in March 2013, which is the first clinic in Alabama dedicated solely to plasma cell malignancies. I have also represented UAB on the NCCN guidelines panel for multiple myeloma and have been asked to give UAB’s best of ASCO/ASH 2013 presentations focusing on the most recent developments in myeloma. My current goals include opening clinical trials for the relapsed/refractory myeloma patient population and to continue to serve the multiple myeloma patient population.
