    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Alfred Chung is a hematologist-oncologist who cares for patients with blood cancers, including leukemias, lymphomas and myelomas. He sees patients who are in the hospital for treatment, including those who need a bone marrow transplant and those receiving chemotherapy or cellular therapies to bolster the immune system.

    Chung's research centers on the study and development of new therapies for plasma cell disorders, including multiple myeloma and amyloidosis (buildup of an abnormal protein called amyloid in the organs). One specific area of study is light chain amyloidosis, in which the dysfunction of certain antibody-producing cells results in abnormal protein fibers in the organs. Chung is looking specifically at targeted therapies to treat this type of amyloidosis as well as novel therapeutic strategies in the treatment of multiple myeloma.

    After earning a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering at the University of Michigan, Chung earned a medical degree at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. At Stanford Medicine, he completed a residency in internal medicine, followed by a fellowship in hematology and oncology.

    Chung is a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Society of Hematology and Association of Northern California Oncologists.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
