Amir S Steinberg, MD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology
Specialties:Cancer (Oncology), Hematology-Oncology
Research Topics:Leukemia, Lymphoma
Amir Steinberg, MD, FACP, is an assistant professor in the division of hematology-oncology at Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr. Steinberg's primary areas of focus are the hematologic malignancies and stem cell transplantation. He has a clinical interest in cancer survivorship as he is a lymphoma survivor himself. He is the principal investigator of a Hodgkin lymphoma study looking at the use of brentuximab in front-line therapy of newly diagnosed patients. He is also a co-investigator on several studies focused on transplant and the hematologic malignancies, particularly lymphoma.
He was previously a clinical assistant professor at UCLA on the staff of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. where his research focused on nonmyeloablative stem cell transplants for acute leukemia and novel therapies for relapsed central nervous system lymphomas.
A native Texan, Dr. Steinberg graduated magna cum laude from the University of Texas, Austin, with a bachelor's in history and a minor in biology. He earned his medical degree from Texas Tech University School of Medicine, and he completed his residency in internal medicine at St. Luke's and Roosevelt Hospitals (previously teaching hospitals of Columbia University) which are now both members of the Mt. Sinai Hospital System. Dr. Steinberg completed a fellowship in hematology-oncology at Lenox Hill Hospital. Subsequently, Dr. Steinberg completed a bone marrow transplant fellowship at Stanford University Hospital and Clinics in Palo Alto, California. Dr. Steinberg is board-certified in Medical Oncology, Hematology, and Internal Medicine.

- A multicenter access and distribution protocol for unlicensed cryopreserved cord blood units (CBUs) for transplantation in pediatric and adult patients with hematologic malignancies and other indications
Since 1989, cord blood banks have been established in six continents and over one million cord blood collections have been performed. Approximately 10,000 cord blood transplants have been performed in children and adults, for malignant and non-malignant conditions.
- Maintenance in Autologous Stem Cell Transplant for Crohn’s Disease (MASCT - CD)
Crohn's Disease (CD) is an inflammatory bowel disease. It can lead to significant complications and discomfort in the stomach and intestines. Crohn's disease is a debilitating, incurable disease of the body's immune cells; it affects almost 1 million people in the United State...
- A multicenter safety study of unlicensed, investigational cryopreserved cord blood units (CBUs) manufactured by the National Cord Blood Program (NCBP) and provided for unrelated hematopoietic stem cell transplantation of pediatric and adult patients
Cord blood (CB) is blood that is taken from the umbilical cord and placenta of healthy newborn babies after childbirth. The cord blood collected from a newborn baby is called a cord blood unit. Cord blood units are stored frozen (cryopreserved) in public cord blood banks. Appr...
