As an academic hematologist, Dr. Casey O’Connell, MD is committed to the tripartite mission of the Keck School of Medicine: research, excellence in patient care, and teaching. Her areas of clinical research interest include myelodysplastic syndrome, myeloproliferative neoplasms and cancer-associated thrombosis. Over the last decade Dr. O’Connell has run numerous investigator-initiated, consortium-led and industry-sponsored clinical trials all seeking to increase treatment options for patients with these blood diseases. These efforts have led to over 40 full publications in peer-reviewed journals. In 2022 she published the final results of a multicenter study that has set the stage for a new understanding of the role of mutated T lymphocytes in MDS.
