ABOUT THE DIVISION
The Division of Hematology and Oncology and the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center have enjoyed a period of tremendous growth and prosperity over the past two decades. From six faculty members in the early nineties, we have grown to be one of the largest divisions in the Department of Internal Medicine with 35 faculty members, including 21 clinician-scientists, with expertise that covers the breadth of hematology and medical oncology. Disease areas of particular clinical and research expertise include thoracic, genitourinary, breast, hematological, and gastrointestinal malignancies. Division faculty are also leaders in hemophilia, sickle cell, and thrombosis research. The division houses the faculty leaders of the Cancer Control, Regenerative Medicine, and PET imaging programs. Our fellowship training program enrolls 10 full-time physicians being trained in the art and science of cancer medicine, and we have now added an official research track. A recently awarded Oncology K12 training grant will enhance our ability to develop oncology faculty clinician investigators. The Division has consistently been one of the largest research portfolios of any academic unit in the School of Medicine, with over $12 million in extramural funding annually. The UC Davis Cancer Center is the one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI) - designated comprehensive cancer centers in the country.
