Biography

Dr. Kim-Hien Dao received her post-doctoral internal medicine training at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego, California, and hematology/oncology fellowship training at the University of California, San Diego.  Dr. Dao started her position as an assistant professor in the Division of Hematology & Oncology, Center for Hematologic Malignancies, at OHSU in the fall of 2009. She is a member of the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. She sees patients who have damage to the blood-forming cells in their bone marrow (myelodysplastic syndrome) or myelodysplastic syndrome that has transformed into acute myelogenous leukemia. She works with other scientists on several clinical trials (research studies), and plans to start her own clinical trials of new treatments for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes that are very likely to become leukemia.  She spends much of her day in the laboratory, studying how blood diseases become leukemia. Dr. Dao hopes her research will help develop treatments to stop the development of leukemia.
