Dr. Baiocchi earned his medical degree at The Ohio State University and his Ph.D. in Physiology at State University of New York at Buffalo. He completed his Internal Medicine residency and fellowship in Medical Oncology at The Ohio State University. Dr. Baiocchi joined the faculty in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Hematology and Oncology at The Ohio State University in 2004.

Dr. Baiocchi's research interests involve the immunobiology and epigenetics of viral associated malignancies in patients with underlying immune deficiency. He joined The Ohio State University's Viral Oncogenesis Program this year and is focusing his research efforts primarily on Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated lymphomas. He is currently working to understand how new classes of drugs that target epigenetic processes affect cellular and viral gene expression and cell death/survival pathways. He is also collaborating with the laboratory of Dr. Michael Caligiuri to devise a vaccine to prevent EBV-associated diseases.

Dr. Baiocchi's clincal practice is dedicated to the treatment of leukemia/lymphoma. He is the institutional principal investigator for the National AIDS Malignancy Consortium and manages patients with AIDS malignancies in his outpatient clinic. Dr. Baiocchi also works with Dr. Pierluigi Porcu, Dr. Charles Eisenbies and physicians on the medical and surgical solid organ transplant teams here at OSU to manage patients with post transplant lymphoprolifertive diseases.
