I am a hematologist who specializes in blood and marrow stem cell transplantation and treating patients with myeloid diseases, including acute myeloid leukemia, myeloproliferative diseases and other conditions requiring allogenic stem cell transplantation. I received my Doctor of Medicine from Indiana University School of Medicine and then went on to complete my internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Southern California. I completed my fellowship in hematology and medical oncology at Weill Cornell Medical College/New York Presbyterian Hospital.
My research interests include post-transplant complications, including acute graft versus host disease (GVHD), a condition that occurs when donor cells attack the recipient. My research investigates new approaches to prevent and better treat acute GVHD.
In addition to my clinical work, I am an instructor in the Division of Hematology at The Ohio State University and a member of several national organizations, including the American Society of Bone Marrow Transplantation, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Society of Hematology. I also serve as a reviewer for scientific publications such as Biology of Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Leukemia and Lymphoma.
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 11/21/2019, Dr. Choe has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
