Collaborative Information

For people interest in collaborating with this Division, the research is Preet M. Chaudhary, MD, PhD (pre-clinical) and Kevin Kelly, MD, PhD (clinical).

Members of the Hematology Division are conducting research in several areas of benign and malignant hematology. In particular, Division faculty members have special strengths in basic, translational and clinical research in the areas of adoptive cellular therapy (Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cells) and viral associated malignancies, including those seen in patients with HIV/AIDS. Members of the Division are also involved in a number of innovative investigator-initiated and National Cooperative Group (e.g., SWOG, AMC) sponsored clinical studies. These trials reflect the broad research interests of the Division’s faculty and cover diverse areas, such as conventional chemotherapeutics, small molecules and monoclonal antibodies.
