Dr. Yaghmour brings expertise in stem cell transplants, advanced cellular therapy, immunotherapies and treatment for bone marrow failure.

His research interests include rare blood disorders and diseases, molecular and epigenetic pathways, drug development, adolescent and young adult leukemia and new strategies of immunotherapy and post-immunotherapy treatments.

“My focus is always on providing my patients with treatments that are less harmful and less toxic but still help achieve better outcomes. Another important goal for me is helping my patients learn to cope with the stress of their illness.

“I want to make stem cell transplants accessible to as many patients as possible, from all different races and ethnicities. Every person on this earth is a potential cure for someone else.”
