The UC Division of Hematology Oncology was founded in 1948 by Richard Vilter, MD, as the Hematology Division of the Department of Internal Medicine.
At the time, it was one of few divisions of Hematology in the United
States. In 1976, the division was combined to include both disciplines
of Hematology and Medical Oncology.
The division strives to
achieve academic excellence by providing cutting edge treatment,
generating new knowledge and teaching to the next generation of
hematologists, oncologists, and cancer biologists.
consists of academic physicians, clinical investigators, lab-based
investigators, clinical and research fellows and advanced practice
providers that collectively support a Solid Tumor Service, a Bone Marrow
and Cellular Transplant Service, a Developmental Therapeutics Program, a
Hemophilia, Bleeding Disorder and Thrombosis Center and a Sickle Cell
Our division is an integral part of the UC Cancer Center
and actively contributes to its Centers of Excellence, multidisciplinary
clinics, tumor boards, and scientific programs.
In the coming
years, we anticipate to continue to add a significant number of faculty
to our ranks in order to grow our clinical and research programs. With
these efforts we will continue to expand our clinical research,
translational and basic science research programs in the emerging fields
of cancer immunotherapy, precision medicine, cancer metabolism and drug
Examples of Departments and Centers of academic unities we closely collaborate with within our Academic Health Center include:
