Jeffrey Wolf, MD

Hematologist

Dr. Jeffrey L. Wolf is an expert in cancer of the bone marrow and blood as well as an expert in bone marrow transplantation to treat these cancers. His primary area of clinical expertise and research is myeloma, the second most common cancer of the blood. He is the director of the Multiple Myeloma Program and the Grand Multiple Myeloma Translational Initiative at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Wolf earned a medical degree at the University of Illinois in Chicago and completed a residency in medicine at the University of California in San Diego. He completed a hematology and oncology fellowship at UCSF and a bone marrow transplantation rotation at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle. He helped establish the bone marrow transplant program at the City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, Calif. in 1979 and the first community-hospital-based bone marrow transplant unit at Alta Bates Medical Center in Berkeley in 1984. Wolf, who joined the UCSF Division of Hematology and Oncology in February 2007, is a clinical professor of medicine at UCSF.
