Jill Zitzewitz, PhD

Jill Zitzewitz, PhD is an associate professor in academic medicine. She spent her career studying therapeutic development for protein misfolding diseases. Since being diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2017, Jill has been teaching full–time while providing a patient’s perspective through her experiences with multiple myeloma. Current myeloma therapies have allowed her to continue teaching and to be a mother to four young adults.  In 2020, Jill became the leader for the central MA multiple myeloma support group of the IMF.  This is the third time that Jill will be attending the ASH Conference as a patient advocate rather than as a scientific researcher. She plans to use her background in science and education to help patients understand the important impact of new and novel therapies for treating multiple myeloma.
