Overview

Physicians at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) have performed unrelated stem cell transplants since 1973. Many have also held leadership roles in the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) network, including chairperson of the Board and chairpersons of NMDP committees. Prior to 2010, the adult and pediatric transplant programs at MSKCC operated as a joint transplant program with combined reporting of data. The two programs are now independent NMDP transplant programs with separate outcomes reporting. The adult program data prior to 2010 can be accessed through the NMDP or by contacting MSKCC. Please see Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center - Peds for specific information regarding our pediatric BMT program.

This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1973 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since February 1988.
