Christopher Reilly, MD
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
I was born in Ohio but lived most of my life in sunny Orlando, FL. After graduating from the University of Central Florida (UCF) with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology/Microbiology, I was fortunate to be awarded a full scholarship as a member of the second inaugural class of the UCF College of Medicine. After graduating medical school, I moved to Philadelphia where I completed my internal medicine residency at the University of Pennsylvania. Throughout my training, I have been fascinated by the field of oncology, and I wanted to learn as much as I could about how and why cancer develops. I am currently finishing my Hematology/Oncology fellowship at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. My ultimate career goal is to be a leading researcher in the fields of leukemia and stem cell transplant studying the patient factors that contribute to leukemia development and treatment toxicity. I am so grateful for the opportunity LLS has provided me as I start my independent career.
