Focused on the pursuit of a cure for every child

The University of Minnesota Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Division supports a comprehensive clinical, research and education program with a focus on five core areas: benign hematology, leukemia, brain tumors, solid tumors (sarcomas) and childhood cancer survivorship. Our physicians and researchers work together with one common purpose: to find a cure for every child.

Clinical Care

The team of pediatric hematologists and oncologists at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital collaborates with physicians from across the nation and globe to treat children who have malignant and nonmalignant diseases. Our multi-disciplinary care model is designed to support patients and families at a challenging – and often frightening – crossroad. Patients can trust that they have complete access to the best available care and therapies related to their diagnoses. In addition, all care is virtually under one roof, making coordination seamless, and the patient/family experience less stressful and more positive.


From the physicians and nurse practitioners to the social workers and pharmacists, we are all committed to improving the care of children with cancer. We practice academic medicine, and all members of our team are actively engaged in research that will make our treatments more effective, less toxic, and cure more kids. The research we take part in everyday helps not only children in Minnesota, but throughout the nation and world.
