Thomas Martin, M.D.

Blood disorder specialist

A leading expert in hematology-oncology, Dr. Thomas Martin is the associate director of the Myeloma Program and director of the Unrelated Donor Transplantation Programs for adults at UCSF Medical Center. He is also clinical research director of hematologic malignancies, or blood cancers, at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. His research interests include developing treatments for myeloma and leukemia as well as expanding the use of bone marrow transplants. He has a special interest in umbilical cord blood transplants and is involved in efforts to improve the outcomes following unrelated donor transplants.

Martin earned an undergraduate degree at Cornell University and a medical degree at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine in Farmington, Conn. After a medical residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, Calif., He completed fellowships in hematology-oncology at UCSF, where he was promoted to an adjunct professor of medicine, division of hematology and oncology.
