Telen's T32 hematology training grant renewal makes 40 years of continuous training

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Marilyn Telen, MD, professor of medicine (Hematology), received notice earlier this summer that her Hematology T32 training grant will be renewed for July 1, 2016-June 30, 2021. With this renewal, Dr. Telen will have 40 continuous years training investigators at Duke. 

In addition to being the founding chief of the Division of Hematology and serving in that role for more than 17 years, Telen has held other leadership roles at Duke, including many years as the director of the Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program, director of the Duke-UNC Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, director of the Duke-UNC Hematology Career Development Program, and as an associate medical director of the Transfusion Service.

Telen's own research has enjoyed continuous and significant extramural funding since 1984 and has contributed important insights into both sickle cell disease and transfusion medicine.
