Jacob Glass, MD, PhD

About Me

I am a medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with leukemias and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). I also conduct leukemia research as part of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Center for Epigenetics Research. I continuously work to develop more-effective and more-personalized treatment approaches for people with leukemias and MDS.

I have dedicated my life to better understanding the complexities of genetic and epigenetic processes in cancer. After majoring in computer science at Princeton University, I studied the epigenetic changes involved in leukemic and myelodysplastic diseases during my MD/PhD at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. I followed this with continued epigenetic work using “big data” analytics during my residency at Weill Cornell Medical Center and throughout my fellowship at MSK.

This unique background underlies my optimistic approach to the rapidly evolving, ever-more-individualized treatment regimens available for leukemias and MDS. I take pride in helping to advance the field, and continue to work with my patients to ensure they receive cutting-edge, personalized care that addresses their individual wants and needs.

Clinical Trials

Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
