Expertise and Experience

We have over 15 years' experience in the production of haematopoietic stem cells for transplantation in our clean rooms at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, and offer a Regional Transplant Service.

Around 140 transplants are processed in the Facility each year for adult and paediatric haematology, immunology and oncology patients in Newcastle’s hospitals.


The Facility also works with leading clinicians to develop and manufacture novel cellular therapies:
