Medical College of Wisconsin secures key contract from US HRSA

t's own cells) hematopoietic stem cell transplants (HCT). Hematopoietic stem cells are the cells responsible for continual regeneration of circulating blood cells throughout life; they are not embryonic stem cells. The CIBMTR has made these data available to investigators and physicians worldwide. In the past year alone, the CIBMTR has published more than 20 papers, is conducting more than 150 observational studies and has helped to coordinate eight national clinical trials in HCT.

In addition to the Stem Cell Therapeutic Outcomes Database, HRSA recently awarded other C.W. Bill Young Cell Transplantation Program contracts to the NMDP in order to continue and expand the NMDP's work as a single point of access for transplant patients. The NMDP will continue to serve as the Bone Marrow Coordinating Center and the Office of Patient Advocacy, and will become the nation's new Cord Blood Coordinating Center.

U.S. Congressman C.W. Bill Young, an internationally recognized leader in increasing support and funding for biomedical research, was instrumental in founding a national marrow donor registry that could provide potentially life-saving treatment for those diagnosed with leukemia and other blood diseases. The Congressman and his wife became aware of the need for marrow transplantation while helping a child from their district. Young initiated the marrow donation effort with $2 million appropriated to the U.S. Navy's marrow transplantation research program. From 1999 to 2005, Young served as chairman of the Appropriations Committee, during which time he successfully led the effort in Congress to double federal medical research funding over five years for a variety of needs, including blood diseases.
