Some of the many Hematology/Oncology research opportunities available related to rare cancers and blood disorders, such as sickle cell disease, are listed below. Select a study to review a brief description and requirements. Parents or guardians of children who might be eligible are encouraged to inquire about enrollment. Contact information is provided at the end of each study.
Please note that Pilot and Phase I studies are the most experimental and should be considered only after other treatments or trials have been attempted without success.
