Chief, Lymphoma Service

Anas Younes, Director of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Lymphoma Service, describes how a team of experts with a collective knowledge base of more than a 100 years works on each patient’s behalf.


As a medical oncologist and Chief of Memorial Sloan Kettering's Lymphoma Service, I work with my clinical and basic-science colleagues to accelerate the translation of recent scientific discoveries into novel treatment strategies to improve the cure rate and survival of patients with Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. 

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2013 with two decades of experience in treating and managing people with lymphoma, and with an extensive background in translational scientific research. I am particularly interested in developing novel targeted therapies and linking them to biomarkers (early markers) that can help match patients with the most effective and minimally  toxic medicines.
