The University of Minnesota’s Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation & Cellular Therapy (BMT & CT) Fellowship Program is seeking applicants for their 2023-24 academic year.
The world’s first successful bone marrow transplant was performed in 1968 at the University of Minnesota in a child with severe combined immunodeficiency syndrome. Since that time, the Division of Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation has been a leader in this field. Driven to find new treatments and safer transplant therapies for children with life threatening malignant and non malignant diseases, University of Minnesota investigators have received millions of dollars in NIH and industry support to manipulate the immune system to kill cancer cells and harness the power of stem cells to repair diseased or chemotherapy and radiation damaged tissues.
The Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation Fellowship Program provides Board Eligible or Board Certified Pediatric Hematologists/Oncologists with a clinical and research training experience of exceptional breadth and depth in blood and marrow transplantation. Our internationally-recognized Pediatric BMT Center serves children from throughout the United States and abroad who are undergoing allogeneic transplant for diverse primary disorders (including high-risk hemato-lymphoid malignancies, primary immune deficiencies, non-malignant hematologic disorders, acquired and inherited marrow failures, metabolic disorders, and life-threatening forms of epidermolysis bullosa) as well as autologous stem cell rescue following high-dose chemotherapy for high-risk pediatric solid tumors.
