About BMRN

 

The Bone Marrow Registry in Nigeria (“BMRN”) is a not-for-profit organization based at the College of Medicine, University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Enugu. We are the first internationally accredited donor registry in Nigeria, and only the second in Africa. Our mission is to improve access to genetically diverse stem cell donors from Nigeria and to match patients all over the world with life-saving stem cell donors. We also seek to construct the first cord blood bank in Africa in order to support hematopoietic stem cell research and transplantation.
