Dr. Filippo Milano is a physician-scientist whose research is focused on the use of umbilical cord blood as a source of stem cells for transplantation to treat blood cancers. He concentrates on clinical practice improvements with a goal of increasing the number of patients eligible for transplantation and to improve clinical outcomes for those who receive cord blood transplants. He has carried out pivotal analyses of blood cancer patients who have received transplants, comparing outcomes of cord blood recipients with those who had blood stem cell transplants from unrelated donors. Dr. Milano also studies the use of an experimental, off-the-shelf cord blood product designed to extend immunological protection to recipients of cord blood transplants until their donated cells are fully engrafted and proliferating.
