Assistant Professor of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, UCSF
Dr. Cheryl Peretz is a pediatric hematologist-oncologist who provides care for many types of cancer in children. She specializes in difficult-to-treat blood cancers.
In research, Peretz focuses on myeloid leukemia, primarily acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Her studies also investigate mixed phenotype acute leukemia (a rare form of leukemia that combines AML and acute lymphoblastic leukemia) and other leukemias in which there is a genetic predisposition. She is particularly interested in how genetic alterations make some leukemias resist standard treatments.
