Dr. Kazandjian’s clinical and translational research interests lie in the treatment of precursor plasma cell disorders including high risk smoldering multiple myeloma and the role of immunotherapy in plasma cell dyscrasias. In addition, he is re-evaluating the role of autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) in the era of highly efficacious novel-novel drugs, immunotherapy biologics, and cell-based therapies with the hypothesis that certain subsets of patients with myeloma may not benefit by default upfront ASCT.
