Overview

The Division of Hematology & Oncology provides innovative, comprehensive, and compassionate family- centered care.

Our interdisciplinary team delivers integrated, state-of-the-art, multi-modality therapies, including stem cell transplant, that aim to cure all pediatric malignancies and optimally treat hematological disorders.

Laboratory and clinical researchers investigate ways to recognize and destroy cancer cells using immunologic and molecular biologic pathways. We participate in and lead many national, multi-institutional clinical trials, and have recently become involved in research on cancer survivorship and palliative care.

We also educate the next generation of laboratory and clinical innovators to provide leadership and excellence in the field.
