Dr. Eliane Gluckman is well known for her important contributions to transplantation. She performed the first successful human umbilical cord blood transplant and, with colleague Hal Broxmeyer, PhD, successfully showed that unrelated cord blood could be used as a source of hematopoietic stem cells. Dr. Gluckman is a founding member and former president of the European Group of Bone Marrow Transplantation and the Head of the Department of Bone Marrow Transplantation at the Hôpital Saint-Louis in Paris. Her research continues to focus on the transplantation of umbilical cord blood and congenital bone marrow failure.
Dr. Gluckman has published numerous articles in the Society's journal Blood.
