Department of Molecular Hematology and Therapy

The Department of Molecular Hematology and Therapy, working closely with other investigators at the MD Anderson Cancer Center, primarily conducts basic and translational research in cancer and leukemia. Our basic research programs are supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

Molecular Hematology and Therapy is also the site of the NIH-funded core lab which provides Confocal Microscopy / Image Analysis and Flow Cytometry / Cell Sorting services to researchers at MD Anderson. Three physicians in the section are participating in treating patients with hematopoietic malignancies -- in particular, patients with leukemia and patients receiving marrow and stem cell transplants.
