"Seeing patients cured — or doing so well that they don’t even remember how badly they once felt — is a big reward of this job."
Dr. Kanwaldeep Mallhi is a pediatric oncologist and hematologist who specializes in nonmalignant blood disorders in children.
These disorders include immunodeficiencies, bone marrow failure and metabolic errors. She is an expert in pediatric blood stem cell transplants, and her research focuses on alternative donor sources and the development of reduced-intensity conditioning regimens, which use radiation, chemotherapy or other procedures to remove diseased or failing cells prior to transplant.
Dr. Mallhi also is an assistant professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine and an assistant professor in the Clinical Research Division at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center.
