Dr. Satyendra Katewa visited Vaidam's office, allowing the team to interact with him in the field of Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT).
During the session, Dr. Katewa discussed Pediatric Allogeneic transplantation. It is a procedure in which a person receives hematopoietic (blood-forming) or blood stem cells from a genetically similar, but not identical, donor. Blood stem cells are found in the bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood.

Replacing bone marrow after high doses of chemotherapy or radiation for diseases like lymphoma and neuroblastoma
Replacing bone marrow with healthy bone marrow to prevent more damage from a genetic disease for diseases such as Hurler syndrome and adrenoleukodystrophy disorder
