The Division of Medical Oncology and Hematology continues its tradition of excellence in patient care, teaching and research.
Services from the division include the combined strength of groundbreaking research, leading-edge technology, accomplished specialists and exceptional, collaborative care in, breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancers, genitor-urinary cancers, gynecologic cancers, head and neck cancers, lung cancer, melanoma, and both malignant and benign blood disorders.
The collaboration of clinicians from each of the treatment modalities, clinical researchers and basic-science researchers at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center provides the optimal platform for bringing new treatments into clinical use rapidly. The center’s patients are often among the first to benefit from new treatments through the robust clinical trial program.
Currently the Brown Cancer Center has more than a dozen other treatments in varying stages of development which have shown the potential to become viable alternatives for treating cancer in the very near future.
The Medical Oncology/Hematology Fellowship Program maintains a high level of quality education, involving its fellows in basic science research and translational research.
