• Hematology Research

    Innovative research and clinical care for children with blood diseases have been major activities at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center since Dr. Kenneth Blackfan served as the first Rachford Professor of Pediatrics from 1920-1923.

    Our Objective
    The primary objective of the Division of Hematology is to provide state-of-the-art treatment for children and adolescents with blood disorders and ultimately to develop cures. This mission is achieved by offering compassionate, comprehensive clinical care to patients and their families; advancing our understanding of these diseases through basic and translational research; and educating future healthcare providers and leaders in the field.

    Our Team
    Within the Division of Hematology, nine faculty members participate in clinical care and / or research along with PhD psychologists. Nurse practitioners, care managers, social workers, school intervention coordinators, child life specialists, data managers, administrative assistants and laboratory associates support the program.  The Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center and the Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center deliver comprehensive services in collaboration with other Cincinnati Children’s specialists.  A variety of clinical research activities are led by hematology faculty, supported by our Clinical Management and Research Support Core (CMRSC).

    The Hematology Division is part of the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute. The institute also includes the Divisions of Oncology, Bone Marrow Transplantation and Immune Deficiency and Experimental Hematology and Cancer Biology.
