Recognition & Awards

  • Endowed Chair in Hematology Research, Robert H. Allen (2018)
    In academic medicine, endowed chairs are honors created by philanthropic funds to provide stable, long-term positions for highly accomplished scientists. The positions recognizes Dr. Pollyea's excellence in pushing forward the field of hematologic oncology and cancer clinical trials.
  • Chairman's Quality of Life Award, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Rocky Mountain Chapter (2018)
  • Scholar in Clinical Research, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (2018)
  • Outstanding Early Career Scholar, University of Colorado Department of Medicine (2015)
  • Research Training Workshop Participant, Translational Research Training in Hematology (TRTCH) (2013)
    Each year, 20 early-career scientists (10 from North America and 10 from Europe) are selected to participate in the rigorous training program led by faculty who are international leaders in hematology. Topics covered include biostatistics and biomarkers, genetics and molecular biology, ethics, and phase I clinical study design.
  • Research Training Participant, American Society of Hematology Clinical Research Training Institute (CRTI) (2008)
    The ASH Clinical Research Training Institute (CRTI) is a unique, year-long education and mentoring program for hematology fellows and junior faculty at academic medical centers. CRTI offers a broad education on clinical research methods, research collaborations, statistical analysis, and managing the demands of family and career. The goal of the program is to produce leaders armed with ideas for clinical hematology research and the tools and resources to make their ideas a reality.

Research Interests

Dr. Pollyea’s research interests involve developmental therapeutics for myeloid malignancies (myelodysplastic syndromes and acute myeloid leukemia) through collaborative laboratory-based efforts and clinical trials involving novel therapies that he designs and leads. He is interested in developing drugs that target leukemia stem cells that will allow for definitive and curative therapies.

Clinical Interests
Optimal management of leukemias and their complications

Care Philosophy
I believe in finding the best, most cutting edge treatments to personalize care for my patients

Personal Interests
Dr. Pollyea received his MD degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He stayed at the University of Chicago Hospital for his residency in Internal Medicine and served as Chief Medical Resident at Cook County Hospital. He then completed his fellowship training in Hematology and Oncology at Stanford University, where he also completed a Masters degree in Epidemiology with an emphasis on biostatistics and clinical trial design. In 2011 he came to the University of Colorado where he is currently the Clinical Director of Leukemia Services.
