Vanoff family establishes hematology fellowship

A Los Angeles family has donated $250,000 over five years for a new USC research fellowship in hematology.
The Vanoff family gave the gift to fund research in the lab of Howard Liebman, associate professor of medicine and pathology in the division of hematology.
Liebman successfully treated Nick Vanoff, Jr. for Hodgkin’s disease at the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital several years ago. “Now he’s healthy, in his mid-30s and looking great,” Liebman said.
The patient’s father, Nick Vanoff, was a well-known producer in Hollywood. He was one of the producers of the musical “City of Angels,” was one of the creators of the Kennedy Center Honors, and produced programs such as “Hollywood Palace” and “The New Andy Griffith Show.”
Liebman said the fellow will pursue research in any area of hematological disorders or malignancies.
