W. Beau Mitchell, M.D.
One of the best things about pediatric hematology/oncology is working with the entire family, and the close relationship formed while treating a wide range of conditions. There is also a close relationship between research and hematology/oncology, and I enjoy being part of the culture of research at Weill Cornell Medicine through ongoing clinical and laboratory studies. Patients truly benefit from the continually advancing knowledge that research brings to the field, and we have seen some dramatic advances just in the past few years. I am excited to see what the future holds for my patients.
