Stem Cell Transplant Program

In patients with blood disorders such as leukemia, their own stem cells produce abnormal, malfunctioning cells. In a stem cell/bone marrow transplant, healthy stem cells are transplanted to a patient after chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.

UVA's Stem Cell Transplant Program treats patients with these high-risk and life-threatening blood disorders. Our program has the highest level of accreditation, including Federation for Accreditation of Cell Therapy (FACT) and National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP)/Be The Match Registry approval.
