Dr. Alexandra Gomez, Hematology and Oncology Fellow at Weill Cornell Medicine and New-York Presbyterian (WCM/NYP), was named one of ten 2018 Young Ambassadors of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation’s (EBMT). EBMT’s Young Ambassador Program highlights talented, rising star scientists, doctors and nurses specializing in the field of bone marrow transplant.
Dr. Gomez was selected based on her commitment to blood cancer treatment and bone marrow and stem cell transplant, as well as her enthusiasm and achievements in the field.
Recently, as part of her commitment to furthering the field of transplant research and bringing new treatments to patients, Dr. Gomez presented key findings from a phase II clinical trial evaluating a novel conditioning strategy for autologous transplant in multiple myeloma at the 2017 American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting.
As part of being selected as a 2018 Young Ambassador, EBMT will grant Dr. Gomez free registration to their annual meeting where she’ll have the opportunity to network with other Young Ambassadors and experts in the field. One of her responsibilities as a Young Ambassador will be to report on new cutting-edge research and developments in the field, as well as her experience as a young physician, with the goal of raising awareness and promoting EBMT’s upcoming initiatives. Dr. Gomez will share this news in a myriad of ways including acting as an EBMT Twitter Ambassador and posting updates about research achievements, participating in television interviews, and submitting articles about other educational meetings and topics of interest in EBMT’s newsletter, Post Congress Bulletin.
Please join us in honoring Dr. Gomez on this wonderful achievement!
