The Section is involved in all aspects of research including basic science, translational, and clinical research. Several Section members have national and international research reputations, including Dr. Jim Russell for clinical research in the area of BMT, Man-Chiu Poon for clinical and translational research in hemophilia, Drs. Pineo and Hull in the area of thrombosis trials, and Dr. Jan Storek who holds a Canada Research Chair in Immunology and is evaluating immunological aspects of bone marrow transplantation.


Over the years, through the generosity of donors, we have been able to support research and educational activities of members of the Section and to advance our knowledge and learn new and better ways to help our patients, both with malignant and benign hematologic disorders.

We also support educational activities of our nurses, students and residents. In addition, this has enabled us to attract students and residents to complete projects with our faculty members and present their findings in national and international medical meetings.
