Bone Marrow Transplantation: Evolution of a Cancer Cure
Fred Hutch has been the world leader in bone marrow transplantation research since Dr. E. Donnall Thomas pioneered it more than four decades ago.
Our scientists helped make bone marrow transplants standard treatment for many diseases and have spearheaded breakthroughs that improve the transplantation process. For instance, our discoveries have improved long-term survival among transplant patients by reducing patients' risk of serious infections, organ damage and other potentially deadly complications. Now Fred Hutch scientists are pursuing innovative transplantation projects to make the procedure even safer and more widely available, bringing new hope to patients worldwide.
