Clinical Nurse Specialist, Lymphoma Research Outpatient
Pictured: Amanda Copeland

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in January 2013 after more than eight years as an Advanced Practice Nurse at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. I began my career working with patients taking conventional lymphoma therapies, but I quickly realized that my true passion was clinical trials, working with novel therapies in lymphoma. I transitioned to a position as a research nurse, managing trials and helping patients follow various treatment protocols.

Now at Memorial Sloan Kettering, I work with the Chief of the Lymphoma Service, Anas Younes. I feel very fortunate to have been asked to join him here, and I am very excited about the achievements the service has made thus far and the opportunities that lie ahead. We have many promising therapies at MSK for lymphoma patients, in addition to the wonderful and dedicated research and clinical staff I am fortunate to work with. I am very excited to be a part of the development of these novel agents and to have the opportunity to work with patients receiving investigational treatments.
