Fellows in the UCLA Hematology-Oncology undertake research projects ranging from benchtop, basic science to investigator-initiated clinical trials and projects in public health and health care policy. There will be scheduled formal one-on-one meetings with the Fellowship Research Committee members in the fall of year 1 to review the process of finding and selecting a research area as well as prospective mentors. Research mentors are faculty within any division in the UCLA campus, as well as Jonnson Comprehensive Canter Center (JCCC), and Caltech.

During fellowship, some fellows additionally complete Masters of Science (MS) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees through the STAR Program. Fellows interested in health policy research may also apply to the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program at UCLA to pursue a Masters of Science in Health Services. Research progress reports are given by all fellows in research at our Fall and Spring Research Retreats. Below is a representative list of recent fellows, their mentors, and research projects.
