About the center
The transplant program at UCSD is a highly specialized team of physicians, advanced practitioners (NP/PA), nurses and social workers. UCSD performs transplants (autologous & allogeneic which includes unrelated, haploidentical, and cord blood) for patients with a wide variety of diseases. We also have CAR-T therapy as well as clinical trials. UCSD is fully FACT accredited and the BMT program is part of an NCI & NCCN -designated comprehensive cancer center.
This center has been performing allogeneic transplants since 1993 and has been an NMDP/Be The Match transplant center since July 1998.
