Regional and National Leadership
The Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin BMT Program performs more blood and marrow transplants per year than any other hospital in Wisconsin. It is also the only center in southeastern Wisconsin that provides allogeneic and autologous transplants and mini-transplants. In 1996, we became only the third institution in the nation to perform blood and marrow transplants for patients with severe multiple sclerosis.
A Pioneer in Donor Transplants
The Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin BMT Program is widely recognized for its pioneering efforts in donor (or allogeneic) transplants. We have received particular attention for our work in T-cell depletion, a technique that helps reduce transplant risks and makes BMT an option for a greater number of people.
International Research Center
Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin are home to the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR). Using the world’s largest database of blood and marrow transplant outcomes, the CIBMTR identifies successful transplant strategies. The center is also active in the design and implementation of clinical studies. Mary Horowitz, MD, MS, serves as scientific director of the CIBMTR.
