About Paola Ghione


I am a Hematologist Oncologist specializing in the treatment of lymphoma and mature lymphoid leukemia. I dedicate my work to understanding more about these diseases, and find new strategies to treat people that have them. After my first specialization in hematology and oncology, I have decided to pursue additional training specifically in lymphoma with some of the top specialists in the field, and I have performed research both clinically and translational, with the help of our labs.
