In the Department of Medicine

Message from the Chief

Welcome to the Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation. We are very proud of the outstanding compassionate care that we provide our patients along with conducting state of the art basic and translational science on stem cell biology, cellular immunology and transplantation biology. Our Program is focused on the comprehensive evaluation and care of patients with complex hematological malignancies and other bone marrow failure syndromes where bone marrow transplantation can provide benefit.  

Our Program was begun by Karl Blume, MD in 1987 and since then has provided transplantation services for over 5,000 patients. Our team based treatment approach involves faculty, fellows, residents, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, our expert nursing staff as well as many aligned staff who provide the best possible care for our patients undergoing treatment at Stanford.

Our faculty performs cutting edge research exploring basic biology and translational research opportunities. The Division runs a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) cell processing laboratory where all clinical material is prepared for transplantation and where complex cell separation and expansion protocols can be accomplished. More basic faculty laboratories perform research under NIH and foundation support.  We pride ourselves in training physician scientists and performing translational research to find better approaches for the treatment of our patients and advancement of the field.

Robert S. Negrin MD
Professor of Medicine and Division Chief
