    Biography

    Lisa Filipovich, MD, began her career at the University of Minnesota where she received her medical degree in 1974 and completed fellowships in both immunopathology and pediatric immunology. She became a professor of pediatrics and served for 10 years as the head of the Division of Immunology at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Dr. Filipovich came to Cincinnati Children’s in 1996. She is currently the Ralph J. Stolle Chair in Clinical Immunology and the director of the Immune Deficiency and Histiocytosis program. She also serves as the medical director of the Diagnostic Immunology Laboratory at Cincinnati Children’s.

    Dr. Filipovich has a special interest in histiocytic disorders, especially hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). Other interests include bone marrow transplant for primary immune deficiencies and post-BMT immune reconstitution. She serves as president of the Histiocyte Society, an international group of more than 200 physicians and scientists who are committed to improving the lives of patients with histiocytosis through research.
