Meet Sascha Tuchman

Area of Interest

I am a board-certified hematologist and medical oncologist and I divide my time between clinical care and clinical research. I study and treat all forms of plasma cell disorders but have a special research interest in amyloidosis and senior and/or frail patients with multiple myeloma. I lead the multiple myeloma and amyloidosis group at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. I have years of experience in managing patients and leading clinical trials in these diseases. I head the teams that manage these patients clinically, collect clinical data, analyze data, and prepare abstracts for conference submissions and manuscript publications. I also mentor trainees with an interest in these disorders and several of my former mentees are pursuing training for careers in academic hematology and oncology. I sit on expert groups that conduct research in and formulate guidelines for managing plasma cell disorders, and I participate in national cooperative groups such as the ALLIANCE multiple myeloma committee and subcommittee for myeloma in the elderly.
