The Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center's Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Program is world-renowned for its expertise in bone marrow transplantation to treat a wide variety of hematological conditions. We also conduct leading-edge clinical and translational research to develop innovative strategies for improving the outcomes of patients undergoing bone marrow transplant.
Our program is advancing clinical care and research in several areas and these include:
The Bone Marrow Transplant Program benefits from a close association with the Transplant Biology Research Center. We are dedicated to understanding the basic immunologic mechanisms through which specific tolerance can be induced for solid organ transplants by performing combined bone marrow and organ transplants. We are also conducting investigations into the mechanism of the graft versus tumor effect of BMT and how it can be separated from graft versus host disease to improve overall outcomes for our patients.
Our BMT team's multidisciplinary approach to evaluation, management, and treatment provides each patient with individually tailored care.
