Personal Statement

I am a hematologist–oncologist specializing in the care of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome and myeloproliferative neoplasms. My goal is to provide the best possible care for these patients, and to discover novel and scientifically-based treatments that can improve outcomes for patients with these diseases.

I am committed to combining compassionate and personalized patient care with cutting-edge, patient-focused, and translational research. I strive to develop treatment plans designed to fit each patient’s individual needs, as well as the biology of their tumor.

As a physician/researcher at Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian, I have the privilege of working with a multidisciplinary group of experts who provide outstanding comprehensive clinical care for patients with myeloid malignancies and acute leukemia in addition to collaborating with laboratory-based research scientists to discover innovative therapeutic approaches. Additionally, together we design early phase clinical trials to evaluate these approaches and medications with the goal of improving the outcomes of patients with hematological malignancies.

 Dr. Bar-Natan’s focus is on translational research in malignant hematology, particularly myeloid malignancies and acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and the development of investigator-initiated clinical trials for patients with these conditions. She leads early phase clinical trials implementing new therapeutic approaches, such as immunotherapies and combination therapies, and serves as the PI and co-investigator on many clinical trials for acute leukemias and myeloproliferative neoplasms.
