Dr. David Dingli

Hematologist and Professor of Medicine
At the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine


David Dingli, M.D., Ph.D., is a hematologist who primarily treats patients with multiple myeloma and related plasma cell disorders. Many of these patients have kidney involvement as part of their illness. His research relates to the development of mathematical and computational models to understand hematopoiesis and its disorders. He has developed models to understand the dynamics of blood formation and various disorders that arise in cells of the bone marrow.

Focus Areas

Significance to Patient Care

Dr. Dingli’s research helps the development of algorithms that make the best use of novel therapeutics and tailors therapy for the individual patient – personalized therapy. Given the high cost of these medications, developing technologies that use these drugs optimally will result in a reduction in the risk of complications from therapy as well as a reduction in the cost of care.
