The Department of Haematology and Blood Stem Cell Transplantation provides a comprehensive service in diagnostic, therapeutic and consultative haematology.

Our Services

Areas of Expertise include:

  • Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation (allogeneic & autologous): Our service is accredited to carry out transplants which we report to the Australian and New Zealand Transplant and Cellular Therapies (ANZTCT) Registrar as well as internationally to the CIBMTR and the EBMT. We have expertise in performing complex allogeneic stem cell transplants, including related, unrelated and haploidentical donor transplants. We host the Australasian Bone
    Marrow Transplant Recipient Registry (ABMTRR) which collects data on all the Blood Stem Cell Transplants carried out in Australia and New Zealand. We run regular long-term survivorship clinics for our transplant patients, working collaboratively with you to manage the long-term sequelae of transplantation and preventative health strategies. We also perform autologous stem cell transplants for a variety of blood and autoimmune diseases, especially severe Scleroderma and Multiple Sclerosis. We are the NSW Health approved centre for transplantation for Scleroderma.
  • Clinical Trials: We have an active clinical trials unit which conducts fundamental research into blood diseases, blood-related cancers and bone marrow transplants. It gives our patients the opportunity to participate in some of the latest therapeutic advances.
  • Research: We conduct fundamental clinical and laboratory research into a variety of blood diseases including the fields of blood cancer, bone marrow transplant and thrombosis / haemostasis, and autoimmune disease. Recent highlights include the study of stem cell transplantation to treat severe autoimmune disease, the molecular markers of leukaemic cells and the role of genetic and coagulation testing for thromboembolism.
  • HIV/AIDS-related cancers: We are the leading clinical centre in Australia for the treatment of haematologic malignancies associated with HIV infection and are
    a member of the AIDS Malignancy Consortium, collaborating with the Australian Kirby Institute, which conducts clinical trial research in this area.
