Clinical Hematology Research Career Development Program

The Clinical Hematology Research Career Development Program at Washington University (Hematology CDP) is a new initiative of the NIH Roadmap that will prepare trainees (Heme Scholars) to address complex clinical and translational research problems in non-malignant hematology. Scholars are expected to become independent researchers and assume leadership roles in non-malignant clinical hematology.

Mentored Research Training

The Hematology CDP combines disease-specific and general clinical research teaching with a mentored clinical research project, over two or three years, for Scholars selected from an outstanding and diverse candidate pool. Scholars will be clinical or research Fellows, clinical or research Instructors, or recently appointed Assistant Professors.

In keeping with the mission of the Paul Calabresi Career Development Award in Clinical Oncology, the WUSM Clinical Oncology K12 program trains clinicians (MD and DO) from diverse disciplines including medical oncology, surgical oncology, gynecological oncology, radiation oncology and pediatric oncology, and basic research scientists (PhD) to design and administer hypothesis-driven pilot/Phase I, Phase II, and Phase III cancer therapeutic clinical trials and observational studies.

Key areas of training

  • Cancer Genomics with integration of genomics studies in patient oriented research
  • Translational Medicine/Clinical Trials with special emphasis on clinical trial design, execution and analysis in this era of personalized therapy
  • Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER)
