Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shimamura "Children with rare disorders, such as bone marrow failure and MDS, deserve the same level of medical care and the same chance to live a healthy life as children with more common disorders.  We are striving to identify the causes of bone marrow failure and MDS to develop better treatments for these disorders. We partner with the patient, the family, and the referring physicians to work together as a team to develop and implement an individualized medical plan.  My research spans basic scientific studies and clinical studies with the goal of improving the diagnosis and treatment of patients with bone marrow failure and MDS. Our patients benefit from access to the exciting scientific and clinical advances and cutting edge technologies developed by researchers at Harvard."
