Division of Blood & Marrow Transplantation

Welcome to the University of Louisville Division of Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation, part of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center and under the direction of William Tse, M.D., FACP.

Our division at the University of Louisville has its long and proud history and tradition. It was the first bone marrow transplantation program in the commonwealth of Kentucky that was established by Dr. Roger Herzig in 1986, which is also one of the very first such programs in the nation and surrounding states.

Including our pediatric BMT colleagues at the University of Louisville, our program has received 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 of the 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 renowned translational research scientists in our division also conduct a score of cutting-edge researches under the NIH and foundation support that promote and speed-up our bench research discoveries to benefit our patient care. In collaboration with our national and international colleagues, we can offer a wide variety of blood cancer, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation clinical trials, and translational research programs in our division.

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