Oncology Hematology Expert Witness FL 500964

Expertise Description

I am a Medical Doctor with over 35 years of expertise in the fields of Oncology and Hematology through clinical research. I have received training in molecular and cellular biology, including avian and mammalian cell culture, general virology, nucleic acid and protein chemistry, enzymology, immunochemistry, and immunobiology. As a Fellow in biomedical research at a cancer center, my research concerned the identification of human hematopoietic cytookines, characterization of their activities in normal and leukemic cells and bone marrow, and application of these findings to the development of a cell culture system for the sustained in-vitro propagation of human myeloid leukemia cells and the testing of those cells for their sensitivity to differentiation agents and cytotoxic chemotherapeutic drugs. I also have experience with poor-prognosis myeloid malignancies, including myelodysplastic syndromes and differention therapy. I have over 25 years experience expert witness as an oncology expert witness with consultations, courtroom testimony, and deposition.
