Dr. Olson's clinical efforts focus on pediatric hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), with a specific emphasis on HSCT for patients with inherited and acquired bone marrow failure. Through his combined clinical activities in the Bone Marrow Failure Center within the Division of Hematology and the Blood and Marrow Transplant Section within the Division of Oncology, his goal is to facilitate outstanding care for patients with inherited bone marrow failure and acquired aplastic anemia during their transition from diagnostic evaluation to treatment through HSCT.

In coordination with these clinical efforts, Dr. Olson's clinical research program seeks to retrospectively and prospectively assess outcomes for patients undergoing HSCT due to inherited and acquired bone marrow failure syndromes, defined and stratified by distinct cytogenetic abnormalities. His team's ultimate goal is to develop targeted clinical trials which will serve to define optimal treatment strategies for patients with distinct genetic and immunologic etiologies of bone marrow failure.
