Meet Michael Verneris, MD

My care philosophy is to first and foremost be honest and forthright with information. I believe that it only in this way that parents and patients can make the best decisions about their care. I also try to engage both the family and the patient in the decision making process when it is possible and appropriate.

“Some of my best research questions have come from moms and dads who have asked me questions that I’m like, ‘We don’t know the answer to this.’ So we go back to the lab and try to figure it out.”

– Dr. Michael Verneris

For Patients:
My research studies are aimed at developing cellular therapy to reduce leukemia recurrence by enhancing immune recovery and by more effectively treating sites of leukemia (with a newly developed method of bone marrow irradiation).
