Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ruan "Our lymphoma group practice provides specialized and multidisciplinary care in the setting of a leading medical institution for patients with all types of lymphomas. We strive to deliver the best possible standard of care, and take pride in our comprehensive clinical research program that provides access to state-of-the-art novel agents and combination treatments that continue to transform care for lymphoma patients, often years before they become widely available elsewhere. With a research background in tumor immunology and vascular medicine, my clinical research has been focused on developing new immunotherapy-based treatments that target the tumor microenvironment for a variety of lymphoma subtypes, including rare diseases such as mantle cell lymphoma and T-cell lymphoma. Another focus of mine is to develop low-intensity biologic-based treatments that minimize side effects and maximize quality-of-life. I believe in personalized, compassionate, and informed care that is tailored to each individual patient's needs."
