• Introduction:

    Maya Khalil, M.D., is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology & Oncology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She received her Hematology-Oncology training at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, where she developed expertise in clinical trial design, drug development, and patient care.


    Her research was focused on the tumor immune microenvironment in mutation driven non-small cell lung cancer. Her focus continues to be on genomic understanding of thoracic malignancies (i.e small cell and non-small cell lung cancers), and developing novel agents that can manipulate the immune microenvironment to overcome resistance to therapies.
