He is currently leading two major clinical trials in these approaches with two more studies planned. In parallel with this, with his colleagues on the BMT Unit at GOSH, he has pioneered novel antibody-based conditioning regimens for children with genetic diseases of the immune system to reduce the need for intensive chemotherapy before bone marrow transplant.
