Hematology and Blood and Marrow Transplant

UCSF Hematology and Blood and Marrow Transplant is dedicated to providing the most advanced treatment options with care and compassion. Our physicians are trained in both hematology and blood and marrow transplant (BMT), giving patients more cohesive care and better access to transplants when needed. Patients come from across the western U.S. to be treated in our program.

UCSF is also home to a robust hematology and BMT research program, and interested patients may have the option to participate in clinical trials. These include studies of cutting-edge immunotherapy treatments such as tumor vaccines and CAR T-cell therapy.

As part of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, we offer our cancer patients access to many services, including support groups, exercise and mindfulness classes, psychosocial support, symptom management and much more.

Our program is a member of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, whose mission is to turn cancer into a curable disease by accelerating the development of breakthrough immune therapies.

Our providers are available for patient appointments throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place order. Appointment options for new and current patients include:

  • Video visits
  • In-person visits at UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center locations for diagnostic evaluation, urgent lab work, infusion and radiation therapy

The health, safety and well-being of our patients remains our top priority. Accordingly, UCSF has infection prevention practices and protocols in place at all of our facilities.
