Hematologic Malignancy (Leukemia/Lymphoma)

The Hematologic Malignancy Program consists of a multidisciplinary team focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pediatric and adolescent cancers arising in the bone marrow, lymph nodes and other associated organs. The program is also focused on the education of students, residents and fellows who will be conducting scholarly and peer-reviewed clinical, translational and basic research in hematologic malignancies.

The Hematological Malignancy Program has several of the most relevant basic, translational and clinical research programs in Acute Leukemias, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Hodgkin Lymphoma and other associated hematologic malignancies.
