BMT Clinical Fellowship
Stanford University, School of Medicine

Stanford University’s Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation announces the opening of a one-year clinical Cellular Cancer Therapy (CCT)/BMT Fellowship beginning July 1, 2019. This fellowship provides clinical and investigative training in adult hematopoietic cell transplantation including autologous and allogeneic (related and unrelated) procedures, as well as alternative donors (haploidentical, and umbilical cord blood), and novel cellular cancer therapies such as chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cells. The fellow will participate in clinical care, provided in outpatient and inpatient settings, and research. Fellows are encouraged to become integrated into a mentored clinical research project, where they will gain experience in data analysis and manuscript writing and submission. Within its NCI-designated Stanford Cancer Institute, the Stanford BMT Program offers outstanding opportunities for collaborative and basic research, and an active clinical trials program.

The Stanford BMT Program performs over 440 transplants (with additional 50-80 cellular therapy) annually, with eleven active faculty members in the Division of BMT. Facilities include a dedicated GMP-approved cell processing facility, a dedicated 22-bed inpatient unit, and an outpatient clinical cancer center which houses the infusion treatment area, apheresis unit and BMT Clinic. The Stanford BMT Program is accredited by the Foundation for Cellular Therapeutics (FACT) and the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP).
