Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins
The Pediatric Oncology Program at Johns Hopkins stands at the forefront of childhood cancer research and patient care. All
Pediatric Oncology faculty members are board certified or eligible and are internationally recognized as leaders in their
field. Other pediatric sub-specialists participate closely in both investigative work and clinical care with colleagues in
surgery and neurosurgery, urology, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, orthopedics, critical care, psychiatry, and radiation
Our programs also interface with the cutting edge work being done in medical oncology at the Sidney Kimmel
Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, particularly in the areas of leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, brain tumors, bone
marrow transplantation, sarcomas, histiocytosis, and the development of novel differentiation therapies and cancer vaccines.
The faculty emphasizes translational laboratory and clinical research, which has had significant impact on cancer therapy.
The Pediatric Oncology Program is a division of The Johns Hopkins Children's Center and The Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive
Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins.
The Pediatric Oncology Program at Johns Hopkins offers a 22 private room unit that is completely
HEPA-filtered and has short stay and outpatient capabilities in the Children's Center. The unit is staffed by specialized
nurses, social workers and activity specialists trained in the special needs of children and adolescents with cancer as
well as those undergoing blood or bone marrow stem cell transplantation for cancer and/or a wide variety of inherited
disorders including immunodeficiency, sickle cell anemia, storage diseases, and autoimmune and histiocytic disorders.
The outpatient clinic is in a connecting building. The inpatient unit and clinic are especially designed to provide a
positive and comfortable experience for the pediatric oncology patient and family by staff devoted to and trained in
pediatric hematology, oncology, and transplantation.
