Sanzari Children’s Hospital. 

This donation established the Michael B. Harris, M.D., Professorship at Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine and Hackensack Meridian Children’s Health Children’s Cancer Institute The Professorship, an endowed position, will be awarded to the physician serving in the role of chief of pediatric hematology-oncology and bone marrow transplant/cellular therapy at the Children’s Hospital and faculty at the School of Medicine. It will support the chief’s academic goals in clinical investigations and translational research and fund key positions that encourage further growth and evolution in the treatment and care of children with blood disorders and cancers.

Dr. Harris, who retired earlier this summer, developed the Children’s Cancer Institute 35 years ago with the goal of providing cutting-edge therapy to children with blood disorders and cancer, and establishing an atmosphere conducive to their care and cure by creating a strong psycho-social presence. Dr. Harris also co-developed the Cure and Beyond Survivorship Program at the Children’s Cancer Institute, which has provided patients with continued care needed beyond their cancer diagnosis and cure. To date, thousands of patients have been treated.
