Rebecca L. Olin



Dr. Rebecca Olin is a hematologist who specializes in bone marrow transplantation in adults. Her expertise encompasses treating acute leukemia, myelodysplastic and myeloproliferative disorders (conditions in which the bone marrow makes too many white blood cells) and aplastic anemia (a condition in which the body doesn’t make enough new blood cells).

In her research, Olin has a particular interest in studying how best to treat blood cancers in older patients, some of whom may require a bone marrow transplant.

Olin earned her medical degree from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. She completed a residency in internal medicine as well as a fellowship in hematology and oncology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, serving as chief fellow for one year. She also has a master's degree in clinical epidemiology, with a focus on medical decision making, from the University of Pennsylvania.
