“Dr. Malogolowkin’s recruitment is a significant step forward for the Medical College of Wisconsin as we continue to build a world-class clinical, research and educational enterprise focused on cancer,” said Dr. Kerschner. “Dr. Malogolowkin’s nationally recognized clinical expertise in pediatric oncology and leadership skills will enable further successes in each of these areas and enhance our institutions’ ability to be at the forefront of cancer care for the citizens of Wisconsin and beyond.”

The results will be better care for infants, children, and adolescents with devastating diagnoses of cancer and blood disorders. His commitment to research will also help us continue to improve cancer survival rates so every family can have a positive outcome.”
