Lee D Cranmer MD, PhD is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington and Associate Member of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, USA. Dr. Cranmer is the Director of Sarcoma Medical Oncology and treats patients with sarcoma, melanoma, and non-melanoma skin cancers.
After graduating from the University of California San Diego with his medical degree and doctoral degree in viral immunology, Dr. Cranmer completed residency training in internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic and fellowship training in medical oncology at the University of Arizona. He remained at the University of Arizona as a faculty member until 2015, at which time he moved to Seattle for his present position. His professional interests include all aspects of sarcoma management. He is also interested in cancer immunotherapy, clinical trial design, management of cutaneous malignancies, cancers of unknown primary origin and management of brain metastases.
Dr. Cranmer believes in a team-based approach to cancer care, with patients at the center of the team. Patients are also critical partners in our research efforts. If we hope to improve cancer care, it will only be by working together.
When Dr. Cranmer isn't seeing patients, he is spending time with his family, sailing, cooking, brewing beer and repairing old Mercedes Benzes. He also enjoys surfing, but admits that it's a hard past time to keep in Seattle.
