Our Mission

The clinical mission of the Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapies is to design and test disease-specific and biologically rational novel reduced-toxicity transplantation regimens for patients with high-risk leukemia or lymphoma, and for those afflicted with life-threatening inherited conditions that can lead to bone marrow failure, immune deficiency, autoimmune diseases, and neurodegenerative conditions including but not limited to leukodystrophies and mucopolysaccharidosis syndromes.
 
Our translational research mission focuses on developing new cellular immune therapy programs for cancer and viral infections and testing the use of bone marrow transplantation following solid organ transplant to establish immunity, tolerance, and extend organ survival.
