Research

The physicians in the Division of Hematology/Oncology at the Children's Hospital of Michigan are involved in extensive clinical, translational and bench research in pediatric blood diseases, coagulation and bleeding disorders and cancer/leukemia. Much of this research is funded by the National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute and other agencies, including the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the National Hemophilia Foundation.

Members of the division have held many leadership positions with national programs – including the Children’s Oncology Group, Medical Director of the National Hemophilia Foundation and Chair of the International Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis Scientific Committee. They have served on editorial boards, publish journal articles and are frequent lecturers at national and international meetings.
