The National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) is the international leader in the facilitation of unrelated marrow and blood stem cell transplantation. A non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, Minn., the NMDP facilitates unrelated marrow and blood stem cell transplants for patients with life-threatening diseases who do not have matching donors in their families.
Their registry — now called the Be The Match Registry — has grown to more than 7 million donors and nearly 90,000 cord blood units, the largest and most racially and ethnically diverse registry of its kind in the world.
Medical advances are making marrow and umbilical cord blood transplants available to more patients all the time. Since 1987, they have arranged for more than 33,000 transplants to give patients a second chance at life. Today, they facilitate more than 4,300 transplants a year.
As a leader in the field of marrow and cord blood transplantation, they work every day to connect patients, doctors, donors and researchers to the resources they need.
