Our scientists and physicians conduct extensive laboratory and clinical research to identify new treatments and improve therapies for children with hematologic malignancies. Our team's achievements include:
We lead an internationally recognized clinical trials consortium for children and adolescents with newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia — the DFCI/ALL Consortium — consisting of 9 institutions in the United States and Canada. We are a founding
member of a small national consortium of leading medical centers that investigate new treatments for children with Hodgkin lymphoma, including innovative drug combinations (and reduced exposure to radiation) that deliver results with fewer long-term complications. In addition, we participate in clinical trials conducted by the Histiocyte Society for patients with
Langerhans cell histiocytosis.

This research study is a Phase I clinical trial evaluating a drug called ribociclib (LEE011) given in combination with everolimus and other standard of care chemotherapy drugs as a possible treatment for relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia
(ALL). PI: Andrew E. Place, MD, PhD
