Research and/or clinical interests  

Dr. Poorni Manohar is a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of breast cancer. Her approach to care is holistic, integrating both the physical and emotional well-being. She cherishes the opportunity to listen to patient concerns, share in decision-making and develop a treatment plan that aligns with the patient’s personal goals and wishes.

In addition to working closely with patients and families, she partners with the Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research (HICOR). Based at Fred Hutch, this research institute uses cancer-related data to improve the delivery of care. Dr. Manohar has been awarded multiple grants to assess the management of patients with metastatic breast cancer across Washington state. Her goal is to better understand disparities in access to care.  She hopes to build a career in academia that focuses on developing a model of accessible, affordable and sustainable care for all patients.
