The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) is the global leader in providing a cure to patients with life-threatening blood and marrow cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma, as well as other diseases. The nonprofit organization manages the world's largest registry of potential marrow donors and cord blood units, connects patients to their donor match for a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant, educates health care professionals and conducts research so more lives can be saved. The NMDP also operates Be The Match®, which provides patient support and enlists the community to join the Be The Match Registry®, contribute financially and volunteer.
The CIBMTR® (Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research) is a combined research program of the NMDP and the Medical College of Wisconsin. CIBMTR facilitates critical, cutting-edge prospective and observational research that has led to increased survival and an enriched quality of life for thousands of patients.
