Lucy A. Godley, MD, PhD

Associate Professor of Medicine

Dr. Lucy Godley is an expert in the care and treatment of patients with diseases of the bone marrow, including leukemias, lymphomas, and multiple myeloma. She also cares for patients undergoing stem cell transplantation and patients with benign hematologic conditions.

Dr. Godley has a special interest in the molecular basis of bone marrow malignancies and is an active researcher in the field. In her laboratory, Dr. Godley studies the basis for cancer cells' abnormal patterns of DNA methylation, as well as inherited forms of bone marrow cancers.

She has received numerous awards for her research, including the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Physician Postdoctoral Award, the Cancer and Leukemia Group B (CALGB) Foundation Clinical Research Award, the American Society of Clinical Oncology Young Investigator Award, the Cancer Research Foundation Young Investigator Award, the Schweppe Foundation Career Development Award and the Kimmel Scholar Award. She was inducted into the American Society of Clinical Investigation in 2012.

Dr. Godley's goal is to improve health through a deeper understanding and appreciation of science by integrating knowledge about fundamental networks within cancer cells and by bringing novel insights into the pathophysiology of her patients' diseases while offering them new treatment options.
