Specifically, Dr. Sallman is involved in the study of the genetic drivers of myeloid diseases in order to improve prognostication for patients and also to allow for more personalized treatment. He has published significantly on this topic in peer-reviewed journals including Leukemia and Haematologica and this work is the foundation of clinical trials/translational studies designed to improve the quality of life and survival of patients with MDS. Dr. Sallman is also the principal investigator on multiple on-going studies focused on higher risk MDS.
