Marco Foppoli


Dr. Marco Foppoli heads the Functional Department of Oncohematology in the Department of Oncohematology, an integral part of the Department of Hematology and Bone Transplantation of the IRCCS Ospedale San Raffaele under the supervision of Professor Fabio Ciceri.

He is also responsible for inpatient clinical activities in the Lymphoma department of the same institute.

After graduating from the Milan State University in Medicine and Surgery in 1985, he received a specialization in 1988 in clinical and laboratory hematology at the same institute.

After 15 years of working as a therapist at the Department of Internal Medicine under the guidance of Professor Claudio Rugarli, Dr. Foppoli has been engaged in diagnostics, therapy and follow-up (outpatient and inpatient) for about 15 years, with special emphasis on lymphomas, chronic lymphocytic leukemia and multiple myeloma in both traditional and extended treatment (high-dose chemoimmunotherapy, autograft, allograft).

In addition, he is engaged in the diagnosis, clinical management and follow-up of platelet disorders in the periphery and in the center.

Marco Foppoli also coordinates complex patients from the clinical point of view of a comprehensive specialist therapist on the path of his interdisciplinary research.

From a research point of view, he manages numerous protocols of clinical, diagnostic studies, as well as research in terms of treatment, including with innovative molecules in phase 1. He is also involved in therapeutic protocols with CAR-T.

He is the author and co-author of numerous articles published in scientific journals. He constantly participates in national and international congresses, courses and conferences.
