Lindsey Murphy, M.D., M.S.
Pediatric oncologist Lindsey Murphy, M.D., M.S., looks at the patients and families she serves as teammates. She prioritizes open, honest communication with them and makes sure she gets to know them to ensure that each treatment plan is aligned with that family’s goals. She’s excited about the rapid progress in her field and the chance to offer patients new treatments that give results.
Dr. Murphy is a physician-scientist with multiple lines of investigation aiming to advance leukemia treatment. She developed a test to help assess the success of CAR T cell therapy, an innovative treatment that augments a patient’s own immune cells in order to fight cancer. She has also designed several clinical trials testing CAR T cell therapy for B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Other investigations focus on improving the process of treatment itself in stem cell transplantation, chemotherapy and oncology inpatient care.
Raised in Southern California, Dr. Murphy enjoys quality time with family and close friends, cooking and baking when away from work. She is a fan of all things Disney.
