Clinical outcomes research is a core activity of the CIBMTR. Investigators are invited to propose studies that utilize the CIBMTR’s large Research Database. These studies culminate in publications in peer-reviewed journals and move the field of hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) toward improved outcomes and higher quality of life. Since its inception in 1972, CIBMTR data and statistical support have resulted in more than 900 publications addressing HCT.
Studies are conducted within a Working Committee structure. They are guided by Chairs who are experts in the relevant field and by Scientific Directors who are experienced transplant physicians with MS degrees in biostatistics or related fields. MS-level biostatisticians coordinate Working Committee activities and participate in individual studies, and PhD-level biostatisticians provide oversight. Investigators from around the world are currently participating in more than 250 CIBMTR studies.
