Mathew Fero, MD, FACP

My clinical and research interest is focused on the development of novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of hematological malignancies. Towards this aim, I am serving in several different capacities:

1) Director of the UNM Cell Therapy Program, which has brought hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and CAR T cell therapy to New Mexico. 

2) Co-leader of the Hematology Clinical Working Group, which reviews and prioritizes clinical trials for hematological malignancies at UNM and affiliate NCORP community sites.
3) Director of UNM Cell Therapy laboratory which is developing methodologies for the processing and storage of hematopoietic stem cells and CAR T cells

4) Leader of the Fero research laboratory which has discovered non-RNA coding genes that interact with cell cycle regulators to cause hematological malignancies, with the potential as targets of new therapies for hematological malignancies, and diagnostic tests.
