Tanaya Shree, M.D., Ph.D. (she/her)

  • Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Hematology/Medical Oncology, School of Medicine


Dr. Shree is a lymphoma specialist and a physician-scientist, meaning she sees patients with lymphoma and does research on lymphoma biology and treatments. She is a board-certified medical oncologist with subspecialty training in hematologic malignancies, and has authored research papers on cancer biology, immune deficiencies in cancer, and immunotherapy. She aims to meet each patient where they are and help them understand and manage their disease and its treatment and side effects. Dr. Shree chose a career in oncology because of the opportunity to develop long-term relationships with patients through times good and bad, and the amazing scientific community working to improve cancer care. Outside of work, Dr. Shree spends time with her husband and two kids, biking, hiking, camping, and playing board games. She has danced on and off stage all her life and loves puzzles of all kinds, especially crosswords.
