Johns Hopkins is a core center of the BMT clinical trials network; COG approved. Current studies are looking at ways to facilitate graft tolerance to reduce the risk of GVHD and reduce graft rejection in patients with mismatched donors, as well as investigating safer ways to transplant non-malignant diseases. Some patients with fully matched donors do not require immune suppression beyond four days after transplantation.

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1969 and has been an NMDP transplant center since October 1997.
