Welcome to Penn's Hematology Research Training Program

Welcome to the Hematology Research Training Program at the University of Pennsylvania! The Hematology Research Training Program (HRTP) at the University of Pennsylvania was established in the mid-1970’s. It has received NHLBI T32 funding since 1978 and to date it has provided support for 179 predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees. Our mission is to sustain the hematology workforce by offering a diverse group of physician-scientists and scientists basic and translational research experiences, training, career advising, and mentorship.

As biomedical research advances rapidly, there's a growing need for professionals trained to work at the intersection of medicine and science. Our goal is to identify, train, and mentor a diverse group of talented individuals, helping them become leaders in academia and industry with a focus on hematology.

Diversity is at the forefront of our program, and we believe it benefits both our trainees and society as a whole. Our leadership and faculty actively participate in the recruitment of clinical fellows, postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and MD/PhD students. We also engage with undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, and clinical fellows to spark interest in hematology as a career.
