|Project period||May 1999 – March 2026|
The long-term goal of this program is to produce independent investigators capable of making important contributions to pediatric hematology and oncology. The program is open to MD’s or MD/PhD’s and will support one second-year (PGY-4) and one third-year fellow (PGY-5) each year. The trainees will be recruited from the extensive network of pediatric subspecialty training programs at Washington University School of Medicine.
This program will include qualified applicants with backgrounds in pediatric hematology and oncology research. Only those applicants with the highest likelihood of success as physicians/scientists will be chosen for funding. Supported trainees participate in didactic seminars, lectures and journal clubs that cover genomics, epigenomics, developmental biology, cellular therapeutics, clinical trial design and performance and survivorship as appropriate to their research projects. Trainees may perform their postdoctoral research in a wide range of laboratory and clinical settings at Washington University, provided the research is relevant to the field of pediatric hematology-oncology.
Training will be overseen by a program steering committee with expertise in each of these domains. Joshua B. Rubin, MD, PhD, and Jorge Di Paola, MD, serve as program directors and Laura Schuettpelz, MD, PhD, serves as the training director. This program will provide trainees with the opportunity to leverage the prodigious strengths of the Washington University research and clinical enterprises, in their quests to become the next generation of leaders in pediatric hematology-oncology research.
Applications are available on the Siteman Cancer Center website.
