Jaap Boelens, Chief; Stem Cell Transplantation And Cellular Therapies Pediatrics, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

I am a pediatric hematologic oncologist and Chief of the Pediatric Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies Service. I specialize in bone marrow and cord blood transplantation to treat blood diseases in children and young adults. I have particular expertise in treating rare diseases, such as lysosomal storage disorders. I am also part of a dedicated community of experts who are working to develop new treatment strategies for our young patients. Our goal is to be able to better control their disease while improving their well-being, as well as that of their families.
