  • Rofida Nofal

    Rofida Nofal

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Stem Cell Transplantation

    BioDr. Rofida Nofal is a physician scientist with special interest in benign hematology, immune-hematology and stem cell transplant. She is a postdoc scholar at the Czechowicz lab in the Stanford University’s Department of Pediatrics, Hematology, Oncology, Stem Cell Transplantation and Regenerative Medicine Division.
    Dr. Nofal’s primary clinical interests are immune-hematological disorders, primary immune-deficiency/immune dysregulations disorders as well as non-malignant transplant and non-genotoxic conditioning. Her current research interests are in bone marrow failure syndromes focusing on Fanconi Anemia (FA); understanding the disease biology, the immune profile of patients with FA as well as determinants of disease severity, progression, and response to therapy.
    Her current main research project at the Czechowicz lab addresses clonal hematopoiesis in patients with Fanconi Anemia, trying to understand leukemogenesis and identify good biomarkers for early detection of clonal evolution to inform treatment decisions in an effort to improve outcome of stem cell therapy in Fanconi Anemia. Other research projects she is involved in, include gene therapy and alternative donor therapy for Fanconi Anemia; addressing how therapy affects disease phenotype, leukemogenesis and stem cell biology and function.
    Dr. Nofal completed a pediatric residency in the Children’s Hospital Zagazig university in Egypt, after which she worked as an assistant lecturer in the department of Pediatrics. During that time, she pursued specialty training in the Primary Immune Deficiency (PID) in Cairo University Children’s Hospital, where she developed her interests in immune-hematology, immune-deficiency and dysregulations.
