Dr. Brian Shaffer is a board certified hematologist specializing in bone marrow transplantation for leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), lymphoma and other bone marrow disorders.  He works with a team at Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center to provide comprehensive cancer care to patients.  

Dr. Shaffer is a researcher as well as a clinician who focuses on the role of Natural Killer (NK) cells in outcomes after transplant.  NK cells are white blood cells that have anti-tumor and anti-infection properties.  Dr. Shaffer is also focused on improving outcomes for transplant patients without a matched sibling donor through his work as a principal investigator for a number of ongoing clinical trials.
