Patient Care Location



Curing hematologic cancers with precision medicine and minimal toxicity has been a multigeneration challenge and a highly prioritized work for our group at Yale. Through continual engagement with patients and their families, educational meetings and well informed decision making sessions, we help our patients navigate the field of transplantation and cellular therapy. Our multidisciplinary team while trying to harness the curative promise of cellular immunotherapy also has special focus to enhance its safety and provide long term supervision for cancer survivors. We strongly encourage our patients to learn the strengths and limitations of the existing standard of care, the knowledge of which could be applied to personalize treatment plans and foster research environment to advance the broader field.
