Dr. Jay Read started his pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship training in 2019. Dr. Read decided to pursue a career as a Hematologist/Oncologist because of the relationships he developed with patients and their families during his medical school and residency training. Oncology is unique as a specialty in that it includes many aspects of primary care, while also requiring management of patients with critical illness.

His research thus far has focused on infectious disease and the development of new antibiotic therapies. He studied how Gram-negative bacteria, one of the most serious infections in children with cancer, build their cell wall defenses and how to potentially exploit holes in these defenses.
