Overview

The University of Michigan’s BMT program averages 250 transplants each year-making us one of the largest programs in the state of Michigan. Our program is patient-focused, research-driven and internationally recognized for expertise in transplantation. Our Adult & Pediatric program has maintained FACT accreditation for the past 20 years and maintains a multidisciplinary approach to treating our BMT patients. Our medical teams are comprised of physician, nurse coordinators, physician assistants, social work, and pharmacists working together with insurance and financial teams to provide each patient the best care all in one hospital. In addition, we also have one of the best Extra Corporeal Photopheresis (ECP) programs in the state of Michigan that provides cutting-edge therapies to transplant patients with graft-vs.-host disease (GVHD).

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1990 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since September 1994.

Attending physicians

Adult - Sarah Anand, Monalisa Ghosh, Darren King, John Maciejewski, John Magenau, Attaphol Pawarode, Dan Peltier, Pavan Reddy, Mary Riwes

Pediatric - Ghada Abusin, Sung Choi, Mark Vanderlugt, Gregory Yanik

Other programs and services

Our program has been at the forefront of the development of CAR T-cell therapies for the past several years. Our program was 1 of 13 programs that participated in the CAR-T licensing trial for childhood ALL and 1 or 20 programs participating in the pivotal trial that led to FDA approval of diffuse large cell lymphoma for adults. Our BMT program has been the first in the state of Michigan to offer all the currently FDA-approved CAR T-cell therapies through Kymriah (Novartis) and Yescarta (Kite). Our Cellular Immunotherapy program is also very active in research efforts that include various CAR's, tumor cell vaccines, and cell-based therapies that utilize stem cells to create new tissues and gene therapies.

Patient Support Services are available throughout the course of the patient's treatment for BMT and CAR-t cell therapies: Patient and Family Research Center, Practical Assistance Services, Complimentary Therapy Programs, Psych Oncology Program, Counseling and Spiritual Services, Community Programs, Patient and Caregiver Support Services, BMT Nutritional Services, Fertility Services and easy communication with our medical staff via Michigan Medicine patient portal.
