  • Biography

    Colleen Annesley, MD, is an attending physician at Seattle Children's Hospital, and an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington. Her clinical areas of interest are leukemia, lymphoma, and high risk or relapsed leukemia.

    My research interests include the development of novel immunotherapy trials for the treatment of pediatric leukemia and lymphoma. CAR T cell immunotherapy has been a ground-breaking treatment for these diseases, and we are now working to improve upon this therapy even further, with the goal of providing a lasting cure for all children with this disease.
