Welcome to Pediatric Hematology/Oncology


Our division seeks to discover new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat childhood cancer and blood diseases. Under the supervision of our internationally-recognized physicians, our patients receive care at a world-class medical center along with the chance to participate in clinical trials at the cutting edge of medical science today. To continue to foster advancement in these fields into the future, the division also focuses on educating the next generation of leaders.

The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology has teamed up with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation’s Tech Conquers Kids’ Cancer program to help raise money for lifesaving childhood cancer research!

On Thursday, April 18 at SAP Campus Palo Alto, we’ll be co-hosting a head-shaving event as part of the larger tech community coming together for the cause. As many of our faculty members have received St. Baldrick’s grants in the past, we are ecstatic to join the global movement of visionaries, innovators and the world’s best problem solvers to creating a better tomorrow for kids with cancer.

Crystal Mackall, MD, a Stanford professor of pediatric oncology/hematology, recently sat down with me to explain why she’s so optimistic about the future of CAR-T therapy for treating cancer.
