The BSBMTCT presently has 50 members across United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland (ROI) performing transplantation and cellular therapy.
Our activities are focussed on the development, education, and improvement in outcomes for patients undergoing blood and marrow stem cell transplants and cellular therapy.
These can be broadly divided into three main areas which include:
The BSBMTCT registry holds over 83,000 registrations including transplant data and more recently data on cellular therapies.
Members of the BSBMTCT are centres with individuals active in the field of transplantation, and in the advancement of knowledge of the use of allogeneic or autologous haemopoietic stem cells and cellular therapy, in the treatment of leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and other malignant disorders, non-malignant haematological disorders including aplastic anaemia and haemoglobinopathies and appropriate non haematological diseases.
Centre Members of the BSBMTCT are engaged in allogeneic or autologous haemopoietic stem cell transplantation and cellular therapy across the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. Centres that submit 100% MED-A data annually are classed as the Society’s full members
Organisations interested in or committed to the care of stem cell donors and donees, as a patient association or support organisation may join the Society as affiliate members.
Individual affiliate membership is available to people who are, or have been, actively engaged in allogeneic or autologous haemopoietic stem cell transplantation work or cellular therapy, or in the care of donors and donees. Individual affiliate members will possess a medical, research, nursing, or allied health professional degree, or equivalent and demonstrate an interest and/or expertise in stem cell transplantation, cellular therapy or other associated areas. This might include patients and their advocates, and students.
