About the Program

The Hematology Training Grant Program promotes innovative research and career development in basic, translational and clinical research in the broad field of hematology and related disciplines. This recently-renewed training grant, currently in year 31, supports both pre- and postdoctoral trainees currently working in a number of areas including angiogenesis, cellular adhesion, biologic effects of microparticles, and lymphoid malignancies. Laboratory-based research is complemented by didactic sessions that include a number of topics in hematology as well as instruction into how to develop a career in scientific investigation. Broad faculty expertise and interaction, including milestone assessments, prepare both MD and PhD trainees for a career in academics.
