Sung Won Choi

Dr. Choi’s research focus is in the prevention and treatment of graft versus host disease (GVHD), the major complication of allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). With her collaborator in the Adult Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program, Dr. Pavan Reddy, she has taken laboratory insights demonstrating the role of histone deacetylase inhibition in GVHD, to conduct a novel clinical trial of GVHD prevention using the anti-cancer drug, vorinostat. This work has caught the attention of experts in BMT from around the country and she was recently awarded a “best abstract” prize from the American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation in recognition of her scientific contributions in this area. As a member of the Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program at the University of Michigan, she is working to lower the incidence of acute GVHD and ultimately improve upon survival and quality of life following allogeneic HCT.
