Auayporn Nademanee, M.D.
“It’s very gratifying to not just save life, but see them get well and get back to their families.”
A fixture at City of Hope for over three decades, “Dr. Nadee,” as she's known, specializes in bone marrow and stem cell transplantation, and working with the most difficult cases: patients whose lives depend on transplants from complete strangers. For over 15 years, Dr. Nademanee has directed Matched Unrelated Donor program at City of Hope’s Hematologic Malignancies and Stem Cell Transplantation Institute, which includes the Toni Stephenson Lymphoma Center, Gehr Family Center for Leukemia Research and Judy and Bernard Briskin Center for Multiple Myeloma Research.
Dr. Nademanee and her team place special emphasis on patient safety, constantly searching for new ways to combat graft-versus-host disease, a serious risk when patients receive stem cells from genetically matched unrelated donors.
Originally from Thailand where she received her medical degree, Dr. Nademanee served residencies and fellowships at Tulane University, USC and UCLA before joining City of Hope in 1981.
