dbo:abstract
  • Texas Children's Cancer and Hematology Centers is the largest pediatric oncology and blood disease center in the United States. U.S. News & World Report ranked the cancer center #1 in Texas and #4 in the United States. It is located in Houston, Texas. Texas Children's Hospitals is designated on the U.S. News and World Report Honor Roll, which is reserved to those hospitals that rank in all 10 subspecialties surveyed. The facilities of the multidisciplinary center, located at Texas Children's Hospital in the Texas Medical Center, includes a 36-bed inpatient unit, a 22,000-square-foot (2,000 m2) outpatient clinic and a 15-bed bone marrow transplant unit, as well as extensive research laboratories. Each year the center provides a specialized level of care to more than 1,500 children and adolescents newly diagnosed with cancer and blood diseases. The center is staffed by nationally and internationally recognized experts who have made major clinical and research advances in the treatment of childhood malignancies. Residents completing core programs in pediatrics may enter accredited subspecialty training in the Baylor College of Medicine hematology/oncology fellowship program. The Center has three NIH-funded training grants. Current research programs include molecular oncology, tumor cell biology, developmental therapeutics, cancer genetics and genomics, cell and gene therapy, transplantation biology, tumor immunology and neuro-oncology. A major focus of the center is to develop innovative therapies for those pediatric cancers and blood disorders that pose the greatest challenges for cure. (en)
