Our ambition is to provide the ideal treatment for everyone who needs a stem cell transplant and make sure they’re free of all complications as they recover. 

At Anthony Nolan, our innovative research aims to improve every single step of the transplant journey. This is driven by the fact that currently, only half of all adult patients will survive beyond five years after their transplant, and for those that do, they often need to make dramatic changes to their lifestyle and adapt to a ‘new normal’ for many years into their recovery.  

Our research focuses on three key areas: 

  • Discovering the perfect match for every patient 
  • Developing new and improved treatments including new cell therapies 
  • Improving the quality of life of all our patients during their recovery 

This essential work would not be possible without your generous support and donations.  

'Every time I see that our studies are changing practices in the UK and internationally, and patients are benefiting as a result, I know I’m in the right job. I’ll never lose my passion for what we do here and the lives we transform.'

Dr Neema Mayor, Head of Immunogenetics Research at Anthony Nolan
