Clinical, translational, and basic science research in multiple myeloma with an emphasis on the development of novel therapeutic agents.

Biographical Sketch:
Dr. Holstein is a physician-scientist who specializes in the treatment of multiple myeloma and related plasma cell dyscrasias. Prior to joining the faculty at UNMC, Dr. Holstein served as a myeloma specialist at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the University of Iowa. Her laboratory is focused on gaining a better understanding of the pathophysiology of multiple myeloma and the development of novel therapeutic agents for multiple myeloma. Her laboratory research has received funding from such sources as the National Institutes of Health, the American Society of Hematology, and the PhRMA Foundation. Dr. Holstein is an active clinical investigator, and has been involved in clinical trials for patients with newly diagnosed myeloma, with relapsed/refractory disease, as well as in the post-transplant maintenance setting. She has written numerous peer-reviewed research articles as well as review articles and book chapters. She is a member of the Alliance Multiple Myeloma Committee and the NCCN Multiple Myeloma Panel.
