Kenneth Cohen, MD

Assistant Professor of Medicine

Kenneth Cohen, MD, specializes in treating adult patients with lymphoma and blood clotting disorders.

Dr. Cohen conducts research aimed at understanding tumor development--specifically, how tumors recruit and regulate immune cell populations as they grow and respond to therapy.

Dr. Cohen is an ad hoc reviewer for several medical journals including Blood, Leukemia and Lymphoma, and Molecular Cancer Research.
