Research Laboratories

Research in the Hematology Division investigates many aspects of the biology and treatment of hematologic cancers and blood disorders. Laboratory research is focused on several topics including: telomere function in stem cells and cancer, the microbiome, crosstalk between blood clotting and inflammation, organoid models of human tumors, and aberrant stem cells in leukemia. Clinical research centers on clinical trials of novel agents for the treatment of the broad range of blood disorders and corresponding translational studies. A major priority of the division is to translate the results of research from the laboratory into the clinic to provide new approaches for diagnosis and treatment of hematologic disorders.
