Michael Grever

Michael Grever, MD






I’m an oncologist treating patients with leukemia and other blood cancers. I have a pharmacology background and a specialized research focus in experimental chemotherapy and drug development. I serve as Chairman and Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine and hold the Bertha Bouroncle MD and Andrew Pereny Chair in Medicine.

At the OSUCCC – James, we use the latest technologies in our search for more effective and targeted cancer treatments, then apply our findings to patient care as quickly and responsibility as possible. As a physician and scientist, I have more than 30 years experience in the research and development of therapies for patients with hairy cell leukemia, CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) and other hematologic malignancies. I serve as principal investigator on the NCI-funded Phase I / II clinical trial grant.

My work has been published in medical journals, including Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, Blood, and Journal of Clinical Oncology. I've also been honored with a number of awards, including Best Doctors in America, the Distinguished Alumnus Award from University of Pittsburgh and more recently the The Ohio State University Distinguished Scholar Award. Additionally, I was named to the Castle Connolly list of “America's Top Doctors” from 2006-2019.
