About me

Dr. Bita Fakhri is a hematologist-oncologist who cares for adults with conditions such as Hodgkin's lymphoma, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), a blood and bone marrow cancer. She sees many patients who are receiving cellular therapies – which use modified human cells to help the immune system fight cancer – or blood and bone marrow transplants.

In her research, Fakhri focuses on novel approaches to treating lymphoma. She primarily studies targeted agents for CLL and cellular therapies for all types of lymphoma.

After earning her medical degree at Iran University of Medical Sciences, Fakhri earned a master of public health degree, focused on epidemiology and biostatistics, from the Yale School of Public Health. She completed a residency in internal medicine at Boston Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in hematology and oncology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She also has a graduate certificate in clinical investigation from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Fakhri is a member of the American Society of Hematology, American Society of Clinical Oncology and American Society for Transplantation and Cellular Therapy.
