Stem Cell Transplant Center

The Stem Cell Transplant Center at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center is one of the largest and most experienced pediatric stem cell transplant programs in the world. We are an integrated pediatric oncology program through Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children’s Hospital that provides — in one specialized program — all the services of both a leading cancer center and a pediatric hospital.

Pediatric stem cell transplantation, also called bone marrow transplantation, is used to treat many types of conditions affecting children and teens. While traditionally used to treat cancers and blood disorders, stem cell transplants are increasingly being used to treat a growing range of other conditions, including metabolic diseases, genetic immunodeficiencies, and other disorders.
