Welcome to the Bone Marrow Registry in Nigeria

 

 

The Bone Marrow Registry in Nigeria (BMRN) is an internationally accredited, not-for-profit stem cell donor registry based in Enugu, Nigeria. Our mission is to find life-saving, genetically-compatible donors for cancer and sickle-cell patients of African ancestry who need a stem cell transplant. We are 100% volunteer run and rely on the generosity of individuals and organizations to recruit more donors.
