About Tem Bendapudi, MD

Dr. Pavan (“Tem”) Bendapudi is holds a joint faculty appointment in the Division of Hematology and Blood Transfusion Service and is assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.  Dr. Bendapudi received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry magna cum laude from Harvard College and subsequently attended medical school at Stanford University.  After graduating, he performed his residency in internal medicine at MGH, where he developed a strong interest in bleeding and clotting disorders. This led him to pursue additional training in blood banking and transfusion medicine as well as adult hematology through the Harvard combined fellowship programs. He was the first graduate of his residency program to have been board-certified in both hematology and transfusion medicine and today remains deeply involved in the education of trainees in both areas.   Clinically, Dr. Bendapudi maintains an active presence on the inpatient hematology consultation service, the blood bank, and the clinical coagulation laboratory.

Dr. Bendapudi’s research laboratory focuses on the biology of the coagulation system and  ways in which bleeding and clotting disorders impact human health.  He also serves as co-principal investigator of the Harvard Thrombotic Microangiopathies Research Collaborative, an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional clinical research effort that studies Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP), a rare platelet clotting disorder.  Dr. Bendapudi is a recipient of the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Research Society’s Mentored Research Award, the National Hemophilia Foundation-Shire Clinical Fellowship, and the National Institutes of Health K08 Clinical Scientist Career Development Award.

Dr. Bendapudi’s research laboratory focuses on the biology of the coagulation system and ways in which bleeding and clotting disorders impact human health.  His scientific interests are broad and include the functional genomics of rare thrombotic disorders such as purpura fulminans as well as the development of new blood thinning medications that carry little to no risk of bleeding.  Dr. Bendapudi also serves as co-principal investigator of the Harvard Thrombotic Microangiopathies Research Collaborative, an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional clinical research effort that studies Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP), a rare platelet clotting disorder.
