Tiffany Lucas, MD

As a faculty member at UCSF Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, I see patients with pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders although the majority of my time is spent in hematologic diseases such as patients with bleeding disorders, thromboses, immune cytopenias or aplastic anemia, bone marrow failure syndromes, and more. My research and academic focus is on quality improvement practices, patient safety, and medical education and I also do ongoing work in global health with the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
