The primary goal of the clinical research program of the Hematologic Diseases Section is to develop new treatment strategies for hematologic malignancies, the most frequent cancer type in pediatrics. Although cure rates are excellent for many subtypes of childhood leukemia and lymphoma, new approaches are needed to overcome resistance to standard therapies and to decrease treatment-associated
sequelae in survivors of pediatric cancer. A major focus of the Hematologic Diseases Section research program is the development of targeted agents for childhood leukemias and lymphomas. A second area of investigation is the application of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation as a platform to direct allogeneic anti-tumor responses for pediatric leukemias, lymphomas, and sarcomas. Collaborative biologic correlative and pre-clinical studies are conducted as part of these trials. The Section has extensive collaborations with Intramural and Extramural Investigators.
