Richard T. Maziarz MD

Dr. Maziarz specializes in treating bone marrow transplantation and blood cancers. His research interests cover how the immune system recovers after a bone marrow transplant and how the immune system works to fight cancer. Dr. Maziarz sees patients with leukemia, lymphoma and graft vs. host disease and patients who are being treated with immune system therapies.
