The Division of Hematology’s major academic goal is to promote the understanding of a wide scope of hematological diseases. The diagnosis and management of these diseases require a broadly based knowledge in bone marrow physiology and biochemistry, tumor cell growth, hemostasis and thrombosis, red blood cell and hemoglobin molecular biology and immunology. The division has developed good collaboration with the Department of Biochemistry in the McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. The interactions enhance research, teaching and patient activities.
