The Lymphoproliferative Disease Group partners with the Transplant and Cell Therapy program to provide hematopoietic cell transplants and immune effector cell therapies, with both commercial and research product activity. All faculty in the Malignant Hematology Program are co-located at the General Campus of The Ottawa Hospital.
