Meet the Team: Dr. Niu

After completing his fellowship in leukemia at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, Alex Niu, MD, joined a team of researchers and practitioners at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center working to develop new immunotherapies.

Dr. Niu received his medical training at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland before completing his residency in internal medicine at the University of Cincinnati. In addition to his fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, he previously had a fellowship in hematology/oncology at Tulane School of Medicine.

With a focus on immunotherapy, CAR T-cell therapy and bispecific treatments, Dr. Niu believes a more direct, targeted approach will become the gold standard for leukemia and other diseases in the near future, offering patients a better quality of life.

“We’re trying to integrate the patient’s own immune system back into the fight,” he says. “We’re finding ways to re-engage the immune system. We’re going to be able to continually alter our treatments to attack cancer mutations and hopefully keep cancer at bay, where patients are able to continually survive and live longer than projected.”
