About Nicole Kucine, M.D., MS
My clinical interests include working with children with various blood disorders, such as blood clotting disorders and rare disorders called Myeloproliferative Neoplasms. I find it a privilege to be able to help families deal with their children's complex medical issues. By combining excellent, compassionate medical care with research aimed at improving outcomes and preventing disease-associated complications, I believe that we can make a difference for children with cancer and blood disorders.
Dr. Nicole Kucine is Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine and Associate Attending Pediatrician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
After completing her Bachelor of Arts (BA) at Wellesley College, Dr. Kucine relocated to New York City where she received her medical degree (MD) from the State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn (now the State University of New York-Downstate Medical Center). She completed her residency in Pediatrics at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Jersey in 2006 and served as Chief Resident from 2006-2007. After residency, Dr. Kucine completed a fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at the combined program of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). At MSKCC, she served as Special Fellow, looking at new therapeutic agents for high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In 2015 Dr. Kucine received her Master's Degree in Clinical and Translational Investigation studying Myeloproliferative Disorders in children.
At Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. Kucine, who is also the Charles, Lillian, and Betty Neuwirth Clinical Scholar in Pediatric Oncology, is focused in two research areas: 1) blood clotting disorders, and 2) a rare group of bone marrow disorders called Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN). Dr. Kucine leads the Pediatric Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Program at Weill Cornell Medicine, a comprehensive clinical and research program that seeks to gain knowledge regarding the causes of myeloproliferative neoplasms, better understand the outcomes in children, and identify better treatment options for young patients with these diseases. She looks forward to helping patients with a variety of hematologic medical concerns.
