The ABIM is a physician-led, non-profit, independent evaluation organization driven by doctors who want to achieve higher standards for better care in a rapidly changing world.
Practice-changing, Dr. Moskowitz’s research focuses on improving the outcomes of patients with poor-risk diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and Hodgkin lymphoma. It has led to changes in the international standard of care for lymphoma patients.
One area of accomplishment has been to optimize high-dose therapy and autologous stem cell transplantation, as well as new agents, to improve “salvage” therapy for patients with disease that has returned or is not responding to standard therapy. His second area of accomplishment has been to develop strategies that optimize the treatment of newly diagnosed DLBCL patients, according to the likelihood of their disease recurring. These include designing risk-adapted therapies, based on risk factors present before treatment and also the results of imaging studies.
