The basic science and clinical studies that are carried out by hematology faculty cover a broad range of hematologic malignancies (the biology and treatment of hematologic cancers) and blood disorders.

Laboratory research is focused on several topics including: vascular biology and angiogenesis, tumor immunology, telomere dynamics, telomere function in stem cells and cancer, oncogene activation, 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.
