Hematology Clinical Trials Program

The Hematology Clinical Trials Program at Children's Hospital allows children with blood disorders and their families to participate in national and international research studies. If your child is eligible for a study, you can help improve our understanding of hematologic disorders. This can determine the best treatments for your child and other patients.

Our clinical trials include studies that investigate the cause, development and effects of hematologic disorders. We also pursue studies to improve population health and to discover new treatment options for our patients.
