A Message from Program Leaders


Dear Prospective Applicants:

We invite you to explore our Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Training Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a major teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. Ours is a combined training program in Hematology and Medical Oncology.

Our aim is to produce scholars who will devote their careers, in different proportions, to excellence in clinical care, teaching, and clinical/basic research. Every effort is made to tailor the experience to the individuals interests and needs of our trainees. We expect that all graduates of our program will become first-class clinicians, teachers, and investigators. In recognition of the program's success in producing physician-scientists, the NIH has provided training grant support to the program for over 30 years.

We have diverse and active clinical investigative initiatives in:

  • bone marrow transplantation,
  • biologic and immunotherapies,
  • genitourinary malignancies,
  • breast cancer,
  • lung cancer,
  • head and neck cancer,
  • gastrointestinal malignancies,
  • AIDS-related malignancies, and
  • developmental therapeutics

Basic research programs include:

  • signal transduction and growth regulation;
  • the role of transcription factors in hematopoiesis;
  • molecular analysis of hematopoietic stem cell differentiation;
  • biology of prostate cancer and the molecular basis of hormone-independent prostate cancer growth;
  • biology of AIDS-related malignancies;
  • T-cell receptor biology as applied to gene therapy;
  • hemostasis, thrombosis, and vascular biology;
  • molecular retrovirology and HIV-gene therapy;
  • the molecular biology and biochemistry of erythropoietin; and
  • the immunobiology of cytokines

We welcome you to explore our website in detail and learn more about us. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to discuss your areas of interest.

Sincerely,

Dr. Deepa Rangachari, Director of Graduate Medical Education & Fellowship Program Director
