Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Research

Why is Clinical Research Crucial

Clinical research is the driving force behind the development of new and safe drugs, surgical procedures, devices and other therapies designed to address a wide variety of health conditions faced by patients with cancer and hematological diseases.


The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai is committed to providing patients with the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. By joining a research trial, patients gain access to innovative treatments or interventions while also contributing to the advancement of medical science.


The Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai are located within Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, the largest community hospital in Maryland.
