Bio

Dr. Freedman serves as the inpatient medical director of Oncology/Stem Cell Transplant at CHOP. He has a particular interest in epidemiologic and translational research within pediatric supportive oncology and aims to advance the understanding and treatment of symptoms, infections, and organ toxicities in pediatric cancer and hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients. He is also committed to improving the quality of care, and patient safety, for children undergoing stem cell transplant.

He is currently involved in several national supportive care initiatives and trials within the Children's Oncology Group (COG) and is the principal investigator/co-principal investigator of collaborative institutional trials focused on supportive care and organ toxicity (namely pulmonary and thrombotic microangiopathy) in HSCT. Dr. Freedman serves on the antiemetic steering committee at COG, and is vice-chair of the Pediatric Study Group within the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer.

He recently developed standards of practice for patients undergoing transplant for hemoglobinopathies at CHOP, and has participated in development and review of several other supportive care guidelines nationally within COG. Infectious complications and organ toxicity associated with HSCT have been the focus of much of Dr. Freedman's recent work.
