Our institute provides care to patients receiving autologous, related and unrelated allogeneic, cord blood and mismatched stem cell transplants. Research efforts are aimed at preventing and treating graft-versus-host disease, targeting patient immune cells to kill cancer cells and chemotherapy dose escalation for the treatment of multiple myeloma.
