Research

Dr. Komrokji’s research interests are in Phase I and II clinical trials, focused on myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid leukemia, and in the outcome of research in hematologic malignancies with a focus on myeloid neoplasms. His clinical interests are myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), Hodgkin's Disease, and myeloproliferative neoplasms. Dr. Komrokji has authored or co-authored more than 80 peer-reviewed manuscripts, 20 book chapters, and more than 200 abstracts in hematologic malignancies.
