National Marrow Donor Program

Information for Donors & Family Members Traveling to Baltimore

The University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC) is currently screening donors for the Department of Defense Donor Center, as part of the National Marrow Donor Program. If you have been identified as a potential donor, our Blood and Marrow Transplant Program staff will perform your physical examination and other screening tests to determine if you are a compatible match to donate blood or bone marrow stem cells.

We would like your stay in Baltimore to be as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The following information is presented to help you find your way around Baltimore and to enjoy some of the City's attractions. The UMGCCC staff stands ready to assist you in any way possible.

If you have any questions about or during the screening process, please contact our senior BMT program coordinator, Kathy Ruehle, R.N. O.C.N., at 410-328-1229.
