Research and Clinical Interests
Dr. Armistead’s clinical interests focus on hematopoietic stem cell transplant to treat leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma. This focus coincides with his research interests that focus on immune responses to hematologic malignancies and the discovery of tumor antigens for the development of immunotherapeutics.

Research and Clinical Interests:
Dr. Grover’s primary clinical interest is management of lymphoma. Her research interests include novel treatment strategies in lymphoma, particularly immunotherapy, and she is currently involved in the clinical trials of chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy for patients with lymphoma. She is interested in innovative approaches to CAR-T therapy, improving the efficacy of CAR-T cells, and management and prevention of the unique toxicities associated with this therapy. Her ultimate goal is to improve therapeutic options for lymphoma patients, while minimizing toxicities and maintaining their quality of life.
