Who can the clinic help?

People with aggressive, complex or recurring cases of leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma or another blood cancer, and especially those who haven’t had success with standard treatments.

World-Class Expertise

The clinic provides a level of care and expertise not previously available in our area. Michael R. Bishop, MD, brings years of experience in the treatment of complex and aggressive blood cancers. He’s an expert in multiple types of advanced cancer therapy, especially for those who haven’t found success with the usual treatment options.

Working primarily at the University of Chicago Medical Center, Dr. Bishop brings his expertise to Carle Cancer Institute Urbana for the twice-monthly Clinic for Aggressive Leukemias and Lymphomas – elevating the level of care we can offer patients in our community.

Dr. Bishop and the team consult directly with you, studying your unique case and treatment history. They review advanced cancer therapy options and create your treatment plan. When able, Carle administers the treatment in Urbana.

For more complex and advanced therapies, qualified patients have access to Dr. Bishop’s services at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
