The Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Service at MSKCC offers a 1-2 year fellowship for qualified physicians trained in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology who wish to pursue further training in adoptive cellular therapies and stem cell transplantation. The program performs approximately 60 allogeneic transplants a year and treats patients with a variety of adoptive cellular therapies. Fellows are trained in all aspects of conventional, T cell depleted and cord blood transplantation as well as in TCR, CAR T cell therapies and NK therapies. Fellows will participate in both inpatient and outpatient care settings, and are expected to become involved with some aspect of clinical research. In addition they are exposed to lab-based aspects of the program including NK cell and HLA genotyping; detection of donor/host chimerism; marrow and PBSC collection, processing, and cryopreservation; graft fractionation including selection of CD34+ primitive progenitors, T cell depletion, the isolation of selected cells such as NK cells and antigen-specific T cells for adoptive immunotherapy; and assessment of immune reconstitution. Broadening the fellow’s experience are weekly rounds and conferences attended by members of the pediatric as well as adult stem cell transplant services.
