Dr. Andrew Cowan
I am a hematologist-oncologist who specializes in treating multiple myeloma and other plasma cell disorders. In addition to caring for patients at SCCA, I am an active clinical researcher, helping to conduct studies investigating therapies for multiple myeloma, AL amyloidosis and Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia. I am also a member of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s Scientific Review Committee, where I examine the feasibility and merit of research protocols. Teaching has always been an important part of my career; as a UW assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Oncology, I enjoy teaching medical students and fellows about hematologic malignancies.
Following my residency, I worked at the Amyloidosis Center, an internationally recognized leader in the treatment and research of amyloidosis and related diseases. As part of a multidisciplinary patient care team, I also conducted clinical research in gastrointestinal amyloidosis and the impact of bone marrow amyloid deposits on stem cell transplantation.
