About Muhammad Awidi


I was born and raised in Amman, Jordan. My interest in Hematology Oncology developed early on in medical school when I worked as a research assistant at the University’s thrombosis lab. Doing my away rotations in Boston, I fell in love with the city and decided to pursue my internal medicine training there. As a resident I became increasingly engaged in learning about and addressing the healthcare disparities that exist in the Greater Boston community. I was elected to serve on the Massachusetts Medical Society Resident Fellow Section-Governing Council and became a member of the House of Delegates, where the resolution I wrote to increase minority community involvement in clinical trials was adopted as a
society directive.

During my time at Lahey Clinic I was very fortunate to connect with amazing mentors who fostered and supported my interests in the captivating world of Immuno-oncology. This allowed me to focus on my research relating to immune checkpoint inhibitor safety and the effect of obesity and other metabolic variables on their response.

Joining Roswell Park Cancer Center was an easy choice for me. Not only would I have the opportunity to train at one of the first NCI designated centers in the country, but I was to learn from leaders in the field. Roswell Park has a very robust Immuno-oncology research center(several FDA approved immunotherapy agents began at Roswell Park labs) this gives me a unique opportunity to grow as a clinician and further develop as an Immuno-oncology scientist.

My current interests continue to be in immune-oncology, physician leadership, systems of care and community engagement initiatives.
Outside of work you can find me in the climbing gym, playing soccer with my team or venturing around checking off my long list of local hidden gems, cuisines and trails.
