An NCI-Designated Leader in Academic Research

As one of 70 National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers, we're part of a renowned group of leaders in cancer research, prevention, detection and treatment. We strive to stay ahead of the curve in innovation and technology that informs our patient care. Discover our cancer research programs.

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.
