Dr. Auletta is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University (OSU) College of Medicine with a hospital appointment as the Program Director of the Host Defense Program (HDP) in the Divisions of Hematology/Oncology/BMT and Infectious Diseases at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (NCH). The Host Defense Program (HDP) is a translational research collaborative among the Divisions of Hem/Onc/BMT and Infectious Diseases, the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and The Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital. The primary program goal is to interrogate the immune response in the context of pathogen in immunocompromised hosts in order to reduce infection-related morbidity and mortality through the development and use of novel therapies. His basic research interests include defining immunomodulation of regenerative stromal cell therapies, including mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) and multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPCs), and manipulating immune functional recovery following hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation (HSCT). Dr. Auletta’s clinical research interests include optimizing immune-directed cellular therapies for graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) and for other clinical indications during HSCT as well as advancing novel antimicrobial therapies to treat infectious sequelae in immunocompromised patients.
