Clinical Interests

Dr. Shenoy's research interests are focused on stem cell transplants for non-malignant disorders, reduced intensity transplants, and the immunologic mechanisms of graft rejection, graft versus host disease (GVHD), and immune reconstitution following stem cell transplantation (SCT). These efforts are directed at making SCT safer and better tolerated by reducing associated toxicities, especially as it relates to non-malignant disorders such as hemoglobinopathy. She is the Prinicipal Investigator of national trials of unrelated donor transplantation for severe sickle cell disease termed the SCURT Trial (Bone Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network 0601, NHLBI) and thalassemia termed the URTH Trial (Thalassemia Clinical Research Network, NHLBI). Other clinical trials for additional non-malignant disorders such as bone marrow failure syndromes using alternative and minimally mismatched donors are also underway.
