PORT JEFFERSON, NY – New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (NYCBS) welcomes oncologist, Nicole Carreau, MD to its practice. Dr. Carreau will be practicing at 12 East 86th Street, Central Park.
“I wanted to join a large, well-respected group practice,” said Dr. Carreau. “I will bring expertise in the use of immunotherapy.”
Medicine has been Dr. Carreau’s passion and inspired her to pursue it. “I was always interested in science and I wanted to build a career in which I could make a difference in people’s lives every day,” said Dr. Carreau.
Dr. Carreau’s research in both Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma patients included leading a team of investigators across 17 centers in the US and Canada. Her research could allow patients who were previously considered transplant-ineligible to become candidates for the procedure, resulting in longer-lasting remissions. “There are so many subtypes of lymphoma, each of which behaves differently. It affects people of all ages and both genders,” said Dr. Carreau.
She credits her experience from practicing at three locations: Perlmutter Cancer Center, Bellevue Hospital, and the Manhattan “VA” Medical Center.
Dr. Carreau also credits her skills and expertise during college and medical school. At the University Of Connecticut School Of Medicine, she attained several honors, being the recipient of the Carl F. Hinz Jrs. Scholars in Medicine Award.
During her residency at Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr. Carreau was the recipient of the Student Teaching Award and the Arnold P. Gold Foundation’s Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award. As Chief Fellow at New York University, Dr. Carreau received the ASH Abstract Achievement Award.
