Scientific Interest(s):

Dr. Mary Territo's clinical research focuses on investigations of treatments and manipulations to improve outcomes in hematologic malignancies and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Studies of new antimicrobial agents have identified effective agents to help improve the infectious complications seen in patients with hematologic malignancies and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Studies also have looked at the effectiveness of transplantation in different disease settings and in reducing the toxicity seen post-transplantation. Trials are ongoing looking at improving the methodology for transplantation using cord blood as a source of stem cells.
