Research and/or clinical interests 

Dr. George Georges is a medical oncologist who treats patients with blood disorders such as leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and myelodysplastic syndrome. His research seeks ways to reduce the toxicity of blood stem cell transplantation. Dr. Georges’ current research is focused on the use of blood stem cell transplantation to treat severe autoimmune diseases including aplastic anemia, systemic sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and other neurologic autoimmune diseases such as chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, myasthenia gravis, Stiff Person Syndrome, etc.  

 

Dr. Georges’ research interests lie in the following areas: 

  • Hematopoietic cell transplantation for severe autoimmune diseases: clinical trials evaluating autologous or allogeneic transplantation for diseases including systemic sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, aplastic anemia, and neurologic autoimmune diseases. 

  • Nonmyeloablative hematopoietic cell transplantation: regimens to reduce the toxicity of allogeneic transplantation, particularly in older patients or patients with medical comorbidities. 

  • Hematopoietic stem cell and T cell gene therapy: laboratory-based studies on hematopoietic stem cell expansion and genetic correction of underlying disease. 

  • Quality of life, late effects after hematopoietic cell transplantation.
