Ilana Rachel Yurkiewicz
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Hematology
Fellow in Medicine
BioI am a fellow physician specializing in hematology and oncology. I spend my time directly caring for patients, advocating for them as a medical journalist, and researching ways to improve their lives.
My research focus is in hematological malignancies. I explore questions relating to clinical outcomes, quality of life, end-of-life communication, and novel therapeutics in acute leukemias.
As a writer, I strive to bridge the gaps between academic medicine and everyday lives. I am a former AAAS Mass Media Fellow, and as a medical student I created and wrote a blog column at Scientific American on the thoughts of a trainee. I now write the Hard Questions column at Hematology News. My writing has also appeared in Undark Magazine, Health Affairs, STAT News, Aeon Magazine, Science Progress, and The News & Observer and has been republished in The Atlantic and The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2019 anthology.
I have an academic interest in bioethics. I interned with the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, and I have done ethics research on return of incidental findings and physicians’ interpretations of code statuses. My ethics papers have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Penn Bioethics Journal, and Ivy Journal of Ethics.
I’ve also done research in genomics and bioinformatics and the use of telemedicine to augment subspecialty care.
Above all else, I am passionate about providing thoughtful, compassionate, and holistic care for my patients.

James L. Zehnder, M.D.
Professor of Pathology (Research) and of Medicine (Hematology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur laboratory focuses on translational research in 2 main areas - genomic approaches to diagnosis and minimal residual disease testing for patients with cancer, and molecular basis of disorders of thrombosis and hemostasis. My clinical focus is in molecular pathology, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of hemostasis and thrombosis and general hematology.
