Biography

Nikolai Podoltsev, MD, PhD, is a hematologist who specializes in treating patients with acute leukemias, or cancers of the blood and bone marrow. These include acute myeloid leukemias, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, myeloid neoplasms, myeloproliferative neoplasms, and chronic myeloid leukemia.

Dr. Podoltsev also cares for patients with aplastic anemia and bone marrow failure syndromes and those with clonal hematopoiesis of indeterminate potential (CHIP), systemic mastocytosis, and hypereosinophilic syndrome. He is the director of the Hematology/Leukemia Tumor Board and represents Yale Cancer Center on National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) clinical practice guidelines panels, including the Myeloproliferative Neoplasms Panel.

Dr. Podoltsev says he appreciates the relationships he forms with patients and their families. “I enjoy helping them improve their quality of life and taking off the burden of stress when they know they are in the excellent care of our dedicated team,” he says.

Part of the Leukemia Disease Aligned Research Team (DART), Dr. Podoltsev is a principal investigator for multiple clinical trials enrolling patients with acute leukemias and myeloid malignancies.

“We have a number of clinical trials that are investigating drugs that might change the course of many malignant diseases and offering clinical trials is an important part of our mission,” he says.
