Biography

Amer Zeidan, MBBS (a medical degree awarded in several countries outside the U.S.), MHS, is a hematologist who specializes in treating and researching myeloid malignancies. 

Myeloid malignancies occur when healthy blood cells throughout the body and in bone marrow do not mature normally and instead replicate, proliferate, or transform in other ways. Dr. Zeidan’s research and clinical care focus on targeting therapies to a patient’s diagnosis and working with their own immune system to counter the malignancies.

At Yale Cancer Center, Dr. Zeidan is the medical director of Hematology Early Therapeutics Research, leader of the Disease Aligned Research Team (DART) for Leukemia and Myeloid Malignancies, and the assistant director of the Clinical Trials Office for hematology. 

His research efforts focus on finding new, active and safe therapies for blood cancers through clinical trials. He also explores why certain standard therapies have not been as effective in actual practice as in clinical trials, and how the performance of these therapies can be improved in the clinic.

Dr. Zeidan has received many awards including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Scholar in Clinical Research award and the National Cancer Institute Cancer Clinical Investigator Team Leadership award. He serves on the editorial boards of several key hematology and oncology publications, and is the author of more than 260 peer-reviewed studies and chapters of books.
