Her main research interests are: Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation in children and adults, bone marrow transplants in children with inherited disorders including Fanconi anemia and sickle cell anemia. She was the first to perform cord blood transplantation in 1988. This first success led to the development of worldwide cord blood banks and helped to save the life of many patients who could not receive a transplant because of the lack of a donor. More recently she led the International observatory on sickle cell disease Monacord located at the Centre Scientifique de Monaco. The objective of the group is to develop and coordinate actions for establishing diagnosis, treatment tools and promote education for sickle cell disease all over the world including developing countries.
