The MDS-Leukemia Stem Cell Research Center at Columbia University Medical Center
Passion for Research? Compassion for Patients

Director: Azra Raza, M.D.
Co-Director: Siddhartha Mukherjee, M.D., D. Phil.

Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) are a group of blood and bone marrow diseases that devastate the body?s ability to produce healthy blood cells. Currently there is no cure for MDS and treatment options are limited? about a third of MDS patients go on to develop acute leukemia. The MDS-Leukemia Stem Cell Research Center at Columbia University is working to change this, investigating the extraordinary power of stem cells to replenish blood cells for the possible benefit of MDS patients. Since MDS is relatively uncommon, few medical centers see a sufficient number of patients to conduct meaningful clinical trials or detailed molecular studies. Columbia physicians treat patients from across the country and around the world, creating unique opportunities for collaboration and resources for our clinical investigators, including the country?s largest MDS tissue repository. This combination of clinical and basic research expertise has positioned Columbia to make significant strides in the search for treatments and a cure to MDS.
