Division of Hematology & Hematologic Malignancies

The scientific focus of our division is the study of blood and bone marrow in health and disease. Our physicians treat patients with blood cancer, such as leukemias and lymphomas; clotting disorders, such as hemophilia; and diseases of iron metabolism, such as hemochromatosis. Starting with Maxwell Wintrobe, one of the founding fathers of Hematology and the University of Utah Medical School, our division can look back at a long-standing tradition of excellence in research, clinical care and teaching.

Last year researchers from our division garnered more than $7,000,000 in grant income, presented their data at major conferences, and published their results in prime international journals. This would not be possible without the University of Utah’s outstanding collaborative environment and its strong scientific foundation.
