Clinical Assistant Professor 

Clinical interests include the histiocytoses including HLH/MAS, autoimmune hematology including T-LGL, AIHA, and Castleman.  Educational interests include physical diagnosis, clinical decision-making and communication under desperate circumstances, and chemotherapy.  My research focuses on HLH.

Bruno Medeiros, MD

Affiliated Clinical Professor

My research interests focus on the experimental therapeutics of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) with the ultimate goal of improving our understanding of the genomic abnormalities responsible for leukemogenesis and how these abnormalities can be exploited therapeutically. It also includes the development and incorporation of novel agents into the treatment regimens for young and older patients with AML and those with acute leukemia secondary to antecedent hematologic disorders.
