Kevin J. Curran, MD

I am a pediatric oncologist who specializes in bone marrow transplantation. I treat children and young adults who have hematologic malignancies such as leukemia,  disorders of the bone marrow that impair the ability to make normal blood cells, and disorders of the immune system that impair the body’s ability to fight infection.

My research focus is on the development of novel treatment approaches for leukemia and lymphoma that do not respond to current therapies. Specifically, my colleagues and I use genetic manipulation of immune cells to recognize and kill cancer cells. This is a promising form of gene therapy and is currently being tested in clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for children and adults with high-risk or relapsed hematologic cancers. Through these highly innovative studies, we hope to provide a novel and successful treatment option for all patients with cancer.
