About the center
In collaboration with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, a RWJBarnabas Health facility, the Blood and Marrow Transplant and Cellular Therapies Program at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey performs autologous, allogeneic, matched, mismatched, haploidentical and cord blood transplants and immune effector cell therapy. Ours is the only such program in New Jersey offered at an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.
This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 2002 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since July 2005.
