    HERSHEY, PA, December 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Penn State Hershey Medical Center Fellow of Pediatric Hematology Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation Mala Talekar, MD, has been recognized for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in stem cell transplantation, hematology and oncology.

Dr. Mala Talekar is a board-certified pediatrician, who earned an MBBS degree (MD equivalent) from Grant Medical College in Mumbai in 2001, and then attained a second MD from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia a decade later. She focuses her area of practice on children due to her previous experiences in India. While completing a residency in Pediatrics in India, she encountered several children with cancer, but was disappointed with the limited information and resources available to help them. She was inspired to help work toward a cure for cancer, so she traveled to the US to further her training and perform research.

Now in her third and final year as a fellow of pediatric hematology, oncology and stem cell transplantation, Dr. Talekar conducts clinical work regarding children's blood disorders and, malignancies. She also conducts research and lab work related to hematology and oncology, collaborating with MD/PhD doctors to develop a drug for lymphoma, and her research was presented at several academic international platforms such as ASPHO, AACR and ASH. She is passionate about teaching and delights in giving presentations and lectures for medical residents and students.

As Dr. Talekar enters the next phase of her career, she plans to continue to provide expert therapeutic care to children afflicted with cancer and other blood disorders in the clinical area. In regards to research, she aims to continue working on clinical trials and in bench/ translational research in the field of drug discovery & development and cancer therapeutics to help cure cancer in children.
