At the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, discoveries from our laboratories are changing the way care is delivered for pediatric hematology, oncology and bone marrow transplants.
Our scientists are recognized as national leaders in basic and clinical science research and have funding to support their research from numerous national hematology and oncology foundations.
We believe that state-of-the-art treatment for pediatric cancer and blood disorders typically includes enrollment in a clinical trial. In fact, research shows that children who participate in clinical trials have better survival rates than children who do not.
Our physicians and nurses collaborate with laboratory researchers to find new cures and better cancer treatment. Some of our team's most significant advancements include:
"Treatment for autoimmune diseases involves manipulating the same cells we're manipulating for cancer treatment."
