Dr. Goldman has a translational research laboratory that addresses critical problems in hematopoietic stem cell transplant and disorders of hematopoiesis. First, his lab studies telomeres and the enzyme telomerase, and how they impact cancer, bone marrow production, and aging. Dr. Goldman is also involved in studies using CRISPR/Cas9 to correct genes involved in diseases of hematopoiesis, including sickle cell disease, Blackfan Diamond anemia, and Dyskeratosis congenita. In addition, using a murine model of sickle cell disease, his laboratory is looking at ways to make bone marrow transplant safer in sickle cell disease patients by developing non myeloablative preparative regimens. His clinical interests are in the area of primary immune deficiencies, including SCIDs, and acquired and congenital marrow failure disorders. Dr. Goldman has been recognized for clinical excellence by selection as one of the "Best Doctors in America" from 2006 to the present.
