Speakers & Moderators

The panelist C. Ola Landgren, MD, PhD
C. Ola Landgren, MD, PhD

C. Ola Landgren, MD, PhD, is Professor of Medicine, Chief of the Myeloma Program, and Leader of the Experimental Program at the University of Miami Sylvester Cancer Center. Read more about his move to Miami here. Dr. Landgren is a pioneer in the drug development and minimal residual disease (MRD) testing in myeloma. In collaboration with colleagues throughout the world, he develops new strategies (including cell-based, molecular-based, and imaging-based) and continues to be a leader of using advanced MRD testing in clinical trials. He is involved in the service’s rational treatment program (small molecule, monoclonal antibody, immune-based) for newly diagnosed, relapsed and refractory myeloma and amyloidosis patients. His research focuses on early drug development, advanced disease monitoring by new minimal residual disease (MRD) assays and biomarkers, and immune-PET to monitor treatment. He also studies mechanism and markers of progression from MGUS/smoldering myeloma to symptomatic multiple myeloma, and the identification of high-risk precursor patients who may be candidates for early treatment. Prior to joining Miami, Dr. Landgren was the Chief Attending Physician of the Myeloma Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering and Professor of Medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City and Chief of the Multiple Myeloma Section of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD. Dr. Landgren received his MD at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden; and he has had fellowships at Karolinska University Hospital and the National Cancer Institute. He is a frequent speaker at national and international meetings, and has published more than 400 peer-reviewed papers.

The panelist Benjamin Diamond, MD
Benjamin Diamond, MD

Dr. Diamond is a hematologist/oncologist who specializes in the treatment of plasma cell disorders including monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance, smoldering myeloma, and multiple myeloma. His research interests include utilization of minimal residual disease (MRD)-guided approaches to clinical decision-making, maintenance therapy, and the genomics of multiple myeloma and secondary malignancies that occur in patients treated for multiple myeloma. He completed fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, spending a year as chief fellow, and has just recently joined the myeloma group at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center where he is now a member of the Myeloma Genomics Laboratory participating in translational research. Some of his current projects include: Characterizing the genomics and origin of therapy-related myelodysplastic syndromes and acute leukemias that develop post-melphalan treatment. An investigation of commonalities between rare structural variants seen in multiple myeloma at diagnosis and relapse; including real world data collected by HealthTree.

The panelist David Coffey, M.D.
David Coffey, M.D.

David Coffey, M.D. is a physician-scientist at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and the University of Miami. As a medical oncologist, he specializes in treating patients with multiple myeloma. His research is focused on understanding the interactions between myeloma tumor cells and the immune system. Leveraging his skills in computational biology, Dr. Coffey has developed analytical techniques to investigate the cells within the tumor microenvironment using single-cell gene expression profiling and DNA sequencing. He aims to understand how the immune system may fail to prevent myeloma progression and learn new ways to harness the immune system’s power to eliminate the disease more effectively.

The panelist Damian Green, MD
Damian Green, MD

Dr. Damian Green develops new immunotherapies that harness the power of the immune system to treat and ultimately eradicate multiple myeloma and lymphoma. A major research focus is radioimmunotherapy, in which radioactive particles are linked to cancer-targeting molecules called antibodies to deliver deadly radiation straight to cancer cells while sparing healthy tissues. Dr. Green also studies a type of immunotherapy called bispecific antibody therapy in which a two-pronged antibody brings together cancer-killing immune cells and cancer cells. Another major focus of his work is the development and clinical evaluation of a form of genetically engineered T-cell therapy (called CAR T-cell therapy) for patients with myeloma.
