Current research activities encompass a wide range of collaborative efforts in both basic and clinical domains. Our faculty have established and led several interdepartmental research programs including the Stem Cell Institute, the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Program (Mark Reding), the Vascular Biology Program (Robert Hebbel), the Breast Cancer Biology Program (Douglas Yee), and the Stem Cell Biology Program (Philip McGlave). These join the established Adult Blood and Marrow Transplantation Program (Daniel Weisdorf). HOT Division faculty (Jeffrey Miller, Douglas Yee, Carol Lange) also hold leadership positions in the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, an NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center.
The doctors in the HOT Division are highly trained in the clinical care of adult patients with cancer or blood disorders.
Research in the HOT Division is supported by the National Institutes of Health and other peer-reviewed national organizations, by non-profit organizations such as the Masonic Cancer Research Fund, Inc., the Komen Foundation, the Children's Cancer Research Fund, by a variety of other philanthropies and generous individual donations, and by pharmaceutical agencies.
