Blood and Marrow Transplant Research

The Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR) is a collaboration between the Medical College of Wisconsin and the National Marrow Donor Program/Be The Match. For more than 45 years, the CIBMTR has collected health outcomes data from patients undergoing blood and marrow transplants at centers around the world, giving us important insights into how to deliver the most effective treatments for patients suffering from cancer and other life-threatening conditions.
