University of Chicago Medicine Adult & Pediatric Transplant & Cellular Therapy Program

University of Chicago Medicine Adult & Pediatric Transplant & Cellular Therapy Program


At the University of Chicago Medicine, we offer the latest approaches in stem cell transplant and cellular therapy. We are at the forefront of research, treatment, and national clinical trials for complex hematologic and solid tumor cancers.  

Our approach is multidisciplinary, patient centered, and includes the full range of stem cell transplants and CAR-T therapies that are currently available. We also have a robust portfolio of clinical trials that are offered at only a few hospitals in the country—and often we are the only medical center in the Midwest with such trials.  

Our patients benefit from physicians who are internationally recognized for their expertise and experience in: 

  • Alternative donor transplantation: If you lack a fully matched donor, your options may include haplo transplant, mismatched unrelated donor transplant, or haplo-cord transplant — a combination of donated umbilical cord blood stem cells and half-matched (haploidentical) cells from a related donor. 
  • Integrated, disease-specific care: Our physicians specialize in stem cell transplant as well as specific cancer or blood diseases, such as leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma. Working in collaboration with other experts in their respective field, UChicago Medicine specialists will design a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your unique characteristics and based on your specific disease’s biology. 
  • Outpatient stem cell transplantation: You may be a candidate for outpatient stem cell transplantation, which offers the full benefits of this life-saving treatment while allowing you to spend nights in the comfort of your own home or a nearby hotel. 
  • Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology Program: Our collaborative program helps teens navigate their cancer care while still moving forward in their lives. 
  • Stem cell transplant for older adults: We recognize the distinct needs of older patients, so we’ve assembled a multidisciplinary team of stem cell transplant and geriatric oncology experts to design a care program tailored specifically for patients over 60. 
  • Graft-Versus-Host Disease (GVHD) Clinic: Our GVHD Clinic was created to prevent GVHD in people who have had an allogeneic stem cell transplant and to provide comprehensive, prompt care for those who develop GVHD. 

We will use all of our tools to create individualized treatment plans for you and communicate plans and progress with you.
