Department of Pediatrics

A Leader in Research & Treatment Advances

Our pediatrics team, including pediatric oncologist Susan Prockop (shown here with patient Lucas T.), is engaged in a number of research activities to improve care for our patients.

The Department of Pediatrics at Memorial Sloan Kettering is a multidisciplinary center for excellence for the treatment of children, teenagers, and young adults with cancer and blood disorders. Comprising leading experts in the treatment of pediatric malignancies and immune deficiencies, our staff is dedicated to seeking novel approaches to achieve more-effective outcomes while reducing or minimizing the short- and long-term effects of treatment, both in the laboratory and in our state-of-the-art facilities.
