Three doctors in the Division of Hematology, Oncology, and Transplantation (HOT) were recipients of a 2017 Marrow On The Move Research Award. With the support of this award, Drs. Mukta Arora, Shernan Holtan, and Armin Rashidi will conduct research to improve the safety and survival of patients who receive a blood or marrow transplantation. Marrow On The Move is an event of the University of Minnesota Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant Program. The event is held each year at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis, where patients, families, and friends come together to celebrate a loved one fighting a life-threatening blood disease or in memory of a loved one. Please join us for the 2018 event, to be held on July 28, 2018. January 2018
