The Pediatric Oncology Program at Weill Cornell Medicine provides up-to-date comprehensive care to children and adolescents with all forms of childhood cancer.  Our specialists have extensive expertise in leukemias, lymphomas and sarcomas of bone and soft tissue.  A child life therapist and an art therapist provide invaluable support to children and families getting their treatment in our newly renovated facility.

Services & Programs

Pediatric Cancer Program

Our healthcare team cares for children and adolescents with a variety of malignancies, with a focus on lymphoma or leukemia. An integrated team including physicians, a nurse practitioner, social worker, and child life therapist makes the experience as comfortable as possible for the child and family.

Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Lymphoma Program

We provide tailored, comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and follow-up care for adolescents and young adults. Our center features a special program — in collaboration with lymphoma specialists in adult oncology — for young adults with lymphoma, who generally have better results when treated using pediatric therapies.

Childhood, Adolescent and Young Adult Survivorship and Late Effects Program

This program provides ongoing care to survivors of pediatric and young adult cancers after completion of therapy for complications from their treatment, and the effects of surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy that was administered.

What Sets us Apart

  • We are original members of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the premier multi-center pediatric cancer clinical trials group.

Research

Clinical Trials

Eligible patients may have opportunities to participate in clinical trials of promising new therapies.  

We are original members of the Childrens Oncology Group (COG), which is the premier multi-center pediatric cancer clinical trials group. Through COG our patients have access to the latest targeted and molecular cancer agents.

Basic Science

Our faculty is studying the biology of cancer, with special emphasis on the development of lymphomas and tumor metastasis. These efforts have a translational focus, with the goal of using the information gathered to design more targeted therapies.
