Philip McGlave, M.D.

Dr. McGlave is Deputy Director of the Masonic Cancer Center. He received his M.D. in 1974 from the University of Illinois. He received internal medicine residency training and hematology subspecialty training at the University of Minnesota. He also received training in bone marrow transplantation as a visiting fellow at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Dr. McGlave founded the Adult Bone Marrow Transplant Program at the University of Minnesota.

Current focus

“My interest lies in cell and immune-based therapy of blood cancers (such as leukemia) and solid tumors (such as breast cancer).”

Committed to finding a cure

“I am an internist/cancer specialist, not a pediatrician, but I am committed to finding cures for cancer in adults and children through innovative clinical research and therapy. My longstanding collaborations with pediatricians such as John Kersey, Norma Ramsay, John Wagner, Bruce Blazar and other pediatric cancer specialists have been incredibly fruitful.”

Children's Cancer Research Fund: Making a difference

“Children's Cancer Research Fund has provided grants for many faculty who are just starting their careers. Such grants have supported developments in blood cell transplant such as umbilical cord blood transplants, which have proven revolutionary for the therapy of both children and adults with cancer.”
