Adult Stem Cell Transplant and Cell Therapy
Rush University / Rush University Cancer Center

The Division of Hematology, Oncology and Cell Therapy in the Department of Medicine at Rush University / Rush University Cancer Center in Chicago, IL is recruiting a Board Certified Hematologist and/or Medical Oncologist to join its adult stem cell transplantation and cell therapy (SCT-CT) program. Qualified candidates should have excellent clinical SCT training and/or significant clinical experience in the field of SCT-CT with strong interest in clinical/translational research. Besides clinical responsibilities as an attending physician at Rush University Medical Center, applicants are expected to participate in the education of medical students, residents and fellows and initiate and conduct innovative clinical trials/translational research related to SCT-CT.

Our transplant program performs over 100 transplants every year with significant proportion being matched related and unrelated as well as haploidentical allogeneic SCT. The program is fully accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT), the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), and is a member of the Radiation Injury Treatment Network (RITN). This recruitment is part of a key strategic growth initiative under a new leadership in a multidisciplinary advanced program with state of the art technology, outstanding faculty and innovative research in clinical trials. 

Our new, state-of-the-art Cancer Center facility in Chicago will serve as a hub for services throughout our health system. Our core programs are supported by multi-disciplinary teams from medical oncology, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, radiology, research and bioinformatics, clinical operations, and dedicated clinical and support staff, including patient navigators. This structure allows specialists to more easily consult and see patients based on tumor type or molecular and genomic signatures, combining our outstanding multidisciplinary approach with a data infrastructure that supports this patient-centered care. This integration enables us to make a greater commitment to research, dramatically scaling the effectiveness of clinical trials, and enabling translational research that moves bench to bedside, and bedside to bench.
