Research Interests

I have been pursuing the detection of viruses by molecular methods, including CMV and HCV in the past. At present I am working on the detection of HHV-6 as a potential etiology for an encephalopathy syndrome post-transplant. I am interested in the detection of viruses and other infectious diseases in routinely fixed, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections and also developed in situ hybridization procedures for this purpose. With the possibility that hematopoietic transplants may give rise to non-hematopoietic tissue, post-transplant tissue is being investigated for donor cells by either combined immunohistochemistry-in situ hybridization or double in situ hybridization. In addition, I have a clinically-related research interest in the diagnosis and categorization of myelodysplastic syndromes and myeloproliferative disorders. Collaborations include work with CMV (Dr. Boeckh), HCV (Dr. McDonald), non-host cells (Dr. Nelson), and myelodysplasia (Dr. Deeg).
