Hematology & Oncology
Welcome from the Division Chief
Welcome to the Division of Hematology and Oncology. We are a diverse, talented, and caring faculty of over 70 physicians, researchers, and fellows focused on patient care, education, and research.
At Strong Memorial Hospital and Wilmot Cancer Institute clinics across the region, we provide top-notch care working alongside our colleagues and friends in surgery, radiation oncology, radiology, palliative care, pathology and many other specialties. Our doctors are leading the way, bringing new treatments to the clinic through clinical trials. Researchers from our division are showing others around the world how we can do better. Our fellowship program provides us with educational life and vitality and helps to make sure we are preparing the next generations of physicians and researchers.
We are organized clinically into sections. Associate Chief Dr. Chunkit Fung leads Solid Tumor Oncology and Clinical Affairs. Dr. Jane Liesveld is Associate Chief of Academic Affairs and Hematology and supports our educational mission, research mentorship, and faculty mentoring and promotions.
We are grateful to have the support and comradery of a fantastic group of advanced practice providers, nurses, genetic counselors, pharmacists, social workers, and research and administrative staff. I have the great privilege and honor of serving the University and the Rochester community as Chief of the Division of Hematology and Oncology. I could not imagine working with a better team and faculty.
