This workshop with international participation is mainly dedicated to bone marrow transplantation, a treatment modality available for our patients from year 2000. Since then, more than 500 procedures are completed at our Clinic. Moreover, unrelated bone marrow transplantation program was started November 2018 when the first unrelated transplant was performed in our country and closer neighborhood. This year, we made one more step forward, the first haploidentical transplantation was performed.

Our aim is to promote awareness about marrow donation.
