Division of Blood & Marrow Transplantation

Division of Blood & Marrow Transplantation

Welcome to the Division of Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation at the University of Louisville

Our division at the University of Louisville has a long, proud history and tradition. It was one of the first bone marrow transplantation programs in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, established by Dr. Roger Herzig in 1988, and is also one of the very first such programs in the surrounding states and nation.

Including our pediatric BMT colleagues at the University of Louisville, our program has received an excellent accreditation record from the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT), and the pediatric bone marrow transplantation program is the only FACT-accreditation pediatric program in the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky.

We are very proud to provide outstanding compassionate care to our patients along with conducting state-of-the-art translational science on stem cell biology, cellular immunology, and transplantation biology.

We offer the latest hematopoietic stem cell transplantation approaches by using related, unrelated, and umbilical cord stem cell sources for our leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma patients. Our division's renowned translational research scientists also conduct a score of cutting-edge researches under the NIH, state, and receive foundation support to promote and speed-up bench research discoveries to benefit our patient care.

In collaboration with national and international colleagues, we can offer a wide variety of blood cancer, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation clinical trials, and translational research programs.

Our clinical faculty members are supported by an outstanding group of nurses, social workers, medical assistants, pharmacologists, psychologists, nutrition specialists, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, physiatrists, multi-specialty consultants, and hematopoietic stem cell processing personnel who are part of KentuckyOne Health, the largest and most comprehensive healthcare system in Kentucky.
