Physician Resources for Stem Cell Transplant and Cellular Therapies

We collaborate with referring providers to ensure that more patients can access the most advanced care and treatment available. Dana-Farber Brigham Cancer Center has a long history of utilizing cellular therapies to treat blood cancers and blood disorders. Over the course of 50 years, we have performed more than 11,600 hematopoietic stem cell transplants—the original form of cellular therapy. We continue to offer patients the latest treatments, including CAR T-cell therapy, other genetically-modified T cells, and cancer vaccines.

Through partnering with you, we can help your patients receive their care closer to home, reducing the time and cost of care without sacrificing quality. Learn more about our unique approach, and how to refer your patients to our Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies programs:

Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies Annual Symposium

This annual education program is for physicians, nurses, social workers, and payors who care for patients with cancer who may be appropriate for cellular therapy treatment. The symposium features presentations and panel discussions about the rapidly emerging and evolving cellular therapies, with insight on eligibility, referral guidelines, and post-treatment management.
