Clinical Research Division

Areas of Research

The Clinical Research Division’s collaborative programs focus on improving therapies for a number of hematologic malignancies, non-malignant diseases and solid tumor cancers. Our researchers strive to understand the genetic basis for these diseases and to translate that knowledge into new treatment approaches.

Our research extends to eliminating barriers to successful therapies such as acute complications during the transplant process or long-term effects after treatment. The goal is to ensure the translation of ideas into clinical trials that are well-constructed, carefully performed and appropriately analyzed.
