The strengths of the transplant team at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) include our specialization and knowledge. We use advanced techniques and have the very best transplant nursing and supportive services.

These factors have contributed to MSK’s recognition for excellence by The Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR). In a 2022 report, the CIBMTR found our performance on one-year survival for patients receiving transplants from related and unrelated donors to be higher than expected compared to the survival rate of similar patients receiving transplants in the United States.
