Research

The Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program at Michigan State University offers multiple opportunities for clinical and research experience. Michigan State University is a member of the NRG Oncology, the Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) and the Big Ten Cancer Research Consortium. These groups offer opportunities for participation in clinical oncology protocols. Interested fellows are encouraged to design and implement clinical protocols through one of these groups.

Multiple opportunities exist for training in basic sciences with research in the fields of carcinogenesis, cancer pharmacology, tumor biology, tumor immunology and other ontologically related areas. Hematology research areas include clinical hemophilia, biochemistry of humoral clotting factors, platelet immunology, iron overload, immunology of tissue compatibility and other areas.
