At Weill Cornell Medicine, Dr. Kucine, who is also the Charles, Lillian, and Betty Neuwirth Clinical Scholar in Pediatric Oncology, is focused in two research areas: 1) blood clotting disorders, and 2) a rare group of bone marrow disorders called Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN). Dr. Kucine leads the Pediatric Myeloproliferative Neoplasm Program at Weill Cornell Medicine, a comprehensive clinical and research program that seeks to gain knowledge regarding the causes of myeloproliferative neoplasms, better understand the outcomes in children, and identify better treatment options for young patients with these diseases. She looks forward to helping patients with a variety of hematologic medical concerns.
