Martin Majer is a Hematology and Oncology doctor at Logan Health Hematology & Oncology. Originally from the Czech Republic, he attended Medical School in Prague at Charles University Faculty of Medicine in 1987. He finished his residency at the University hospital in Prague in 1992. He then came to the U.S. to work with the National Institute of Health (NIH) on diabetes research and to further pursue his studies. He interned from 1996-1997 at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona, and from 1997-1999, completed his Internal Medicine Residency there with Creighton University School of Medicine. Prior to his hematology-oncology fellowship, he worked as a primary physician for geriatrics and caring for HIV patients in the Bay Area. From 2004-2007, Dr. Majer completed his Medical Oncology Fellowship at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. He started work in California in 2007 as a Hematologist and Medical Oncologist, until joining Logan Health in 2022. Dr. Majer has published research on a variety of topics, including Huntington’s disease, retroviruses, diabetes, and cancer. Oncological themes involved biological treatment of renal cell carcinoma, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, colon carcinoma, and breast cancer studies in regard to HER 2 signaling. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time outdoors skiing, hiking, and cycling.
