Amir Steinberg, MD, FACP, is an associate 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 was the site-specific principal investigator of a multicenter 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.  

In addition to his focus on hematologic malignancies, Dr. Steinberg is the lead investigator in studies exploring transplant in nonmalignant conditions. One study is on autologous stem cell transplant for Crohn's Disease for which he collaborates closely with Mt. Sinai's Inflammatory Bowel Disease group. The other study sis comparing allogeneic transplant for sickle cell anemia with standard of care measures and he collaborates closely with Mt. Sinai's sickle cell anemia team for this study. He also sees referral for other such nonmalignant conditions such as myasthenia gravis and scleroderma.

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.

Dr. Steinberg grew up in Texas and 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.
