General Information for Stem Cell Transplant Fellowship
A stem cell transplant fellowship position is available each year at Texas Children’s Cancer Center and Hematology Service. This is a clinical position for training in pediatric stem cell transplantation and is open to individuals who have completed a basic three-year program in pediatric hematology-oncology. The pediatric stem cell transplant program includes basic, translational and clinical research for a wide range of disorders, both malignant and non-malignant.
The pediatric transplant clinical facility includes a 15-bed inpatient unit with a contiguous outpatient/infusion area. The fellow performs a range of innovative clinical protocols using cellular and genetic therapies. The fellowship position is available beginning July 1, but other accommodations may be possible for qualified individuals. The fellowship extends over 12 months, and the fellow rotates through the inpatient and outpatient units, the Cell Processing facility, the pheresis center, and the HLA tissue-typing laboratory. The position meets all criteria for clinical training in BMT as identified by the American Society of Bone Marrow Transplantation and the Federation for Accreditation of Cell Therapy. The pediatric component is part of a FACT-accredited program. If candidates are interested in laboratory research, there is the possibility of spending additional time working in one of the Center’s basic or translational research programs.
