The Pediatric Center has five major goals:
Roswell Park is part of the Western New York Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Program, a collaboration with Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo and the University at Buffalo. Researchers at Roswell Park are studying the late effects of therapy for childhood cancer. Late organ toxicities and psychosocial adjustments in long-term survivors are being investigated. Children's Oncology Group (COG) studies of the neuro-cognitive effects of treatment of acute lymphocytic leukemia states and of babies with brain tumors will be coordinated in Buffalo. We are a participating member of COG, which is a national cooperative group dedicated to improving survival of pediatric oncology patients through clinical and basic research.
