Nancy A. Kernan, MD -- Assistant Chief, Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Service

I am a pediatric oncologist with extensive experience in transplantation with marrow, cord blood, and peripheral blood stem cells. I treat hematologic malignancies (such as leukemia) and immunologic disorders in infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. I also serve as Assistant Chief of the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplant Service.

The unrelated donor program at Memorial Sloan Kettering was one of the first in the country and I have participated in it from its inception, working on many committees of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) and serving as the Chair of its Board of Directors. I have directed clinical trials of blood stem cell transplants from unrelated volunteer or cord blood donors and have also conducted studies of transplants from HLA-matched or HLA-mismatched family members.
