Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapies Fellowship

The Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) and Cellular Therapies of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC offers a one-year, fully-funded fellowship involving highly specialized multidisciplinary training and a substantial clinical and translational research experience. The Fellow is expected to develop a clinical research interest and complete a clinical research project during the course of the fellowship program.

The Fellow will work under the supervision of the division staff and will be exposed to classic myeloablative transplant regimens along with novel reduced-toxicity transplantation regimens that were institutionally developed following biologically rational principles. Transplanted diagnoses range from high-risk leukemia/lymphoma, solid tumors, bone marrow failure syndromes, immunodeficiencies, autoimmune diseases, and inborn errors of metabolism leading to neurodegenerative conditions.

Reduced intensity cord blood transplantation for inborn errors of metabolism is one of our major programmatic efforts and offers opportunities for close collaboration with the internationally recognized Program for the Study of Neurodevelopment in Rare Disorders.

Children’s Hospital is an active clinical trial site with multiple collaborative and investigator-initiated Phase I and II trials. The clinical research environment includes institutional clinical trials in addition to participation in treatment protocols from the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Consortium (PBMTC), Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network (BMT-CTN), and other multicenter studies.
