About Clinical Haematology at Peter Mac

Nationally recognised and experienced clinicians lead our eight specialised disease groups

Our Clinical Haematology department incorporates one of Australia's earliest and largest allogeneic transplantation services, and a comprehensive clinical trials program dedicated to developing new drugs, generating new data, and bringing new therapies to our patients. We have a dynamic and very active translational research program. This program links our research labs, and our partners in the Parkville academic precinct, to the research we do in the clinics. 

Professor John Seymour AM (Medal of the Order of Australia) is our department director. Specialised disease groups and an expert multidisciplinary team deliver patient care within our service. They are focused and specialised in treating diseases that fall within each disease cluster. We also provide people opportunities to participate in clinical trials. 

There are five haematology registrars on duty at any one time. Our haematology nurse coordinators are specialised in specific haematological diseases.
