    Stem Cell Transplant UnitOur pediatric stem cell transplant unit is
    designed specifically for the needs of young
    patients and their families.

    The Stem Cell Transplant Center at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's performs autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants (also called bone marrow transplants) to treat and support the treatment of pediatric cancers, blood disorders, and other conditions. We are one of the largest and most experienced pediatric stem cell transplant programs in the world, performing more than 100 transplants per year. Our team includes doctors and scientists who are leaders in pediatric stem cell transplantation, as well as nationally known pediatric subspecialists. Our state-of-the-art stem cell transplant facility is designed specifically for children and teens undergoing stem cell transplant — minimizing their exposure to harmful toxins and germs without preventing their freedom to leave their room or interact with family and friends.

    Highlights of our Stem Cell Transplant Center include:

    • A 14-bed transplant unit specially designed for the needs of children undergoing a stem cell transplant
    • An active, world-renown research program with scientists who partner with our clinical team to improve outcomes for hematopoietic stem cell transplants
    • A graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) clinic that offers specialized care for children and teenagers affected with this condition
    • The only pediatric center in New England to receive the Cigna LifeSOURCE Transplant Network Center of Excellence status for Bone Marrow Transplant
    • Named a Center of Medical Excellence by the Bone Marrow Transplant Quality Review Committee at UniCare. We received this distinction based on our Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) accreditation, our quality of care, high patient volume, and high number of outcomes over an extended period of time.
