The Section of Haemato-oncology is a centre for basic and translational laboratory research into haematological malignancies. We aim is to unravel the molecular differences between normal and malignant haematopoiesis using our multi-disciplinary expertise in epigenetics, genomics and immunology. The Section’s research encapsulates a broad range of haematology disorders with a particular emphasis in leukemia, lymphoma and myelodysplastic syndromes.   

Our well-established collaborations with clinicians at King’s College Hospital have shaped the unique translational nature of the research at the Haemato-oncology Section. We have a track record of successful translation of research discoveries into therapies or diagnostic tests which have been incorporated into routine patient diagnostic tests or moved into clinical trials. Thus, the Section currently carries out a series of specialist tests through its Haematological Malignancies Diagnostic Centre which provides a diagnostic service to our local NHS partner as well as the South East of England.

Haemato-oncology is located at the Rayne Institute at Denmark Hill on the King's College Hospital campus, where both the routine molecular activities and the research work of the Section are integrated.
