A Message from the Director

Cancer is a dreaded disease, which will affect virtually all families. Over the past decades significant progress has been made that has led to better early detection of cancer, better treatment of cancer, and better quality of life for patients living with cancer. Our division has achieved national recognition for its excellence in patient care and its pioneering achievements in the development of novel cancer therapies, cancer immunology, translational research and cancer genetics.

Since 2008 the Division has recruited 20 new faculty members and has significantly expanded the scope of its expertise in the various subspecialties of Hematology and Oncology.

Our fellowship program provides outstanding training opportunities in medical oncology, hematology, clinical, translational and basic research. Over the past three years, all fellows trained at UAB successfully obtained dual board certification.

We are committed to providing high-quality cancer care, increasing our understanding of cancer through research, and developing new diagnostic and treatment options. We thank you for visiting our website.
