Where I see patients (1)
Smell the roses
Dr. Elliot Stieglitz is a pediatric hematologist-oncologist who cares for children with difficult-to-treat leukemias (blood cancers most often involving white blood cells).
Stieglitz's laboratory research focuses on juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML), which is often difficult to diagnose and treat. His research has found that the course of JMML varies among patients and that DNA profiling can predict which patients will benefit from certain new treatments. He leads clinical trials – studies that evaluate new therapies – of targeted treatments for patients with JMML, and his research has received funding from the National Institutes of Health, V Foundation, Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Cancer League, St. Baldrick's Foundation and Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Stieglitz earned his medical degree from the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University. He completed a residency in pediatrics at New York – Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center and a fellowship in pediatric hematology-oncology at UCSF.
