Dr. Shreya Agarwal started her pediatric hematology/oncology fellowship training in 2019.
After finishing medical school in India, Dr Agarwal worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the department of Clinical and Translational Sciences in Creighton University before joining pediatric residency at Rutgers University.
Her interest in hematology-oncology primarily developed during her residency in pediatrics. While the science behind bleeding disorders and cancer always fascinated her, the ability to develop long term relationships with patients and their families is what ultimately inspired her to become a hematologist/oncologist. The resilience of children is inspirational and the ability to provide care and support to them in some of their most difficult times, is extremely gratifying. She hopes to not only treat the underlying disorder, but also improve the quality of life of cancer survivors and patients with chronic bleeding disorders.
During residency, she was actively involved in taking care of children and young adults with bleeding disorders, cancer and bone marrow transplant.
With the support and guidance of excellent mentors, she undertook multiple clinical research projects in benign hematology during residency, in particular sickle cell disease and immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP); and presented her work at various national conferences. She also served as the member of Institutional Review Board for two years at Rutgers University and was involved in ensuring ethical conduct and protection of human subjects rights in research.
