• Bone Marrow Transplantation and Immune Deficiency Research

    The Division of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Immune Deficiency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center strives to improve transplant therapies to treat cancer, rare genetic conditions such as immune deficiency disorders and bone marrow failure syndromes such as Fanconi anemia. Through our basic science and translational research, we work to develop new approaches and better therapeutic strategies for these diseases.

The division is led by Stella Davies, MBBS, PhD, MRCP, and Alexandra (Lisa) Filipovich, MD, internationally renowned experts in bone marrow transplantation and histocytosis, respectively.
