The Tulane Blood Cancer Program is committed to advancing the science and care of patients with blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Alongside the Tulane University School of Medicine, we have performed more than 400 life-saving blood and bone marrow transplants, and we are a leader in the New Orleans region as the first fully accredited Foundation for Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT) facility in Louisiana. Our experienced hematologists and multi-disciplinary team creates individualized treatment plans for each patient, and we have access to the latest clinical trials and therapies.
