We are also a member of the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury and Sepsis Investigators (PALISI) network. Our Hematopoietic Progenitor Cell Processing Laboratory is staffed with experienced laboratory personnel that provide services to our patients, including, donor cell processing, including T-cell depletions.
