Lena Winestone, MD

Principal Investigator
Assistant Professor
Pediatric Malignancies and Blood & Marrow Transplant

Dr. Winestone is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Malignancies and Bone & Marrow Transplant at the University of California San Francisco. Dr. Winestone received her MD from Stanford University School of Medicine with a focus in International and Community Health. Her research explores racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in access to care and outcome of leukemia and lymphoma treatment. She studies access to care across the continuum of pediatric cancer from diagnosis and clinical trial enrollment through treatment and relapse to salvage therapies. Her research has shown that African American children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, and mature B cell lymphoma are two times more likely to present with organ failure at the time of a new cancer diagnosis. Her ongoing work investigates access to highly specialized and complex therapies such as stem cell transplant, chimeric antigen receptor T cells, and MIBG therapy.
