Dr. Craig Emmitt Cole joined the department in April 2019. He is a board certified Hematologist who completed his undergraduate degree at Michigan State University and his doctoral degree at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. He began his post-doctoral training in Internal Medicine and Hematology/Oncology at the University of Michigan Health System. He has had the opportunity to do post-fellowship laboratory research in the Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center of Medicine at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. This opportunity then led to a Staff Lectureship at the University of Michigan concentrating primarily on clinical research in multiple myeloma. 

Dr. Cole then became an attending hematologist at Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, Wisconsin for 9 years. While in Wisconsin, he expanded his research interest to include multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, therapeutic apheresis, and myelodysplasia; participating as the onsite primary investigator for over 21 clinical trials. He then returned to the University of Michigan Rogel Center in Ann Arbor as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Hematology/Oncology with his primary clinical and research interest in Multiple Myeloma. He has published and presented his research at the American Society of Hematology and the American Society for Apheresis national meetings. He also has a commitment to patient empowerment and education working with several local and national patient advocacy associations.
