Clinical and Research Background
Dr. Pereira’s clinical interests include HLA typing of patients, family members, and potential related and unrelated or cord blood donors prior to allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT), evaluation of patient alloimmune status, antibody sensitization and resultant donor compatibility prior to HSCT, and post-transplant chimerism testing of patients after HSCT (and for certain specific protocols before transplant) to determine recipient/donor origin of nucleated hematopoietic cells.
Dr. Pereira enjoys reading, baking, traveling and spending time with family.
