Assistant Professor

Enrica Marchi, MD, PhD, is a medical oncologist who specializes in the research and treatment of blood cancer. She cares for patients with all types of malignant hematologic disease, particularly those with T-cell lymphomas. Her primary is on research to develop new treatment platforms for T-cell lymphoma.

Dr. Marchi is an accomplished researcher and has been involved in the discovery of novel therapeutic strategies in the laboratory that have now been translated into clinical trials for patients with T-cell lymphomas. Because of her expertise, she has been named co-director of the Program for T-Cell Lymphoma Research at UVA and the deputy director of the Global T-Cell Lymphoma Consortium (GTCLC). This consortium brings together top research scientists from around the world to advance the care of these rare forms of cancer.

Originally from Italy, Dr. Marchi attended medical school and completed her hematology fellowship at the Institute of Hematology and Clinical Oncology (L. & A. Seragnoli) at the University of Bologna in Bologna, Italy. She was a fully certified clinical hematologist in Europe when she moved to the U.S. to pursue a PhD at Columbia University in New York City.

During her PhD training, she investigated a number of novel drug combinations in the preclinical setting and brought the most promising one in clinical trials for patients with peripheral T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). Dr. Marchi then decided to remain in the U.S. to continue her research and care for patients.

To do so, she had to repeat some of her training and become certified to practice medicine in the U.S. Dr. Marchi enrolled in a residency at Lincoln Hospital in New York and then completed her oncology fellowship training at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, where she joined the faculty of the Center for Lymphoid Malignancies.

Dr. Marchi joined the UVA team in 2020. In her free time, she enjoys world travel and has visited many countries, including Namibia, Rwanda, Brazil, Mongolia, Morocco, in addition to most European countries and many Caribbean islands. She also enjoys running and listening to a variety of music, from classical to electronic.
