Dr. Ross Mangum completed his pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship training in 2020. He is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
Dr. Mangum was initially drawn to the field of pediatric hematology/oncology after observing the incredible strength of patients and families dealing with cancer or blood disorders. He considers it a privilege to play a role in the treatment of these children and feels motivated to advance the field through innovative research in an effort to continually improve outcomes for this courageous patient population.
He conducted research in the laboratory of Dr. Donald "Will" Parsons, MD, PhD.

Dr. Mangum's research is in the area of clinical genomics. Under the direction of his mentor, Dr. Will Parsons in the Pediatric Center for Personal Cancer Genomics and Therapeutics, he works with a team of physician-scientists, genetic counselors, and other researchers to investigate the clinical utility of different genetic tests to help understand why certain children develop solid tumors (including central nervous system tumors), lymphomas, or other rare disorders. His specific research interests include studying how tumor cells that are found circulating in a child's blood can be used to better understand the specific genetic changes leading to tumor development and how to track these changes over the course of a child's treatment.
