Dr. Christopher Flowers graduated from Stanford University from the Human Biology and Humanities honors programs. He remained at Stanford where he completed medical school and a master’s degree in Medical Information Sciences. After medical school, he returned to Seattle where he completed internal medicine residency at the University of Washington. After residency, Dr. Flowers continued his research training in Seattle through the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program and oncology fellowship at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. At the University of Washington, he collaborated on studies that investigated the cost effectiveness of pharmacogenomics in oncology, and developed clinical and translational studies in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Dr. Flowers currently serves an Assistant Professor of Hematology and Oncology at Winship Cancer Institute at the Emory University School of Medicine and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology.

His clinic focuses on specialized care for patients with lymphoid malignancies involving multi-specialty input from hematopathologists, immunologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, and specialists in nuclear medicine and bone marrow transplantation. Through the lymphoma clinic, Dr. Flowers offers a variety of clinical trials and advanced treatment algorithms for patients with lymphoma.
Dr. Flowers’ current research projects span three areas: 1) translational research clinical trials in non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, 2) oncology informatics projects developing an information infrastructure to support pharmacogenomics and outcomes research, and 3) medical decision analyses and cost-effectiveness analyses aimed at developing strategies to individualize care for cancer patients.
