The NIH-funded Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinical Trials Network (BMT CTN) has enrolled more than 6,000 patients in 31 trials since 2001. The third State of the Science Symposium was recently held to bring together 12 committees of leaders in HCT to address critical issues and present their proposals for future study. Following the symposium, leaders in the field then selected the highest priority projects for the next seven years. View the presentations and access the slides to learn about the findings and understand the roadmap for future BMT CTN trials in the U.S.
