Executive Committee


The South African Stem Cell Transplantation Society (SASCeTS – hereunder referred to as the Society) is a scientific and educational not for profit organization aiming to bring together hematologists, oncologists, physicians, scientists, nurses, technologists, medical administrators and allied healthcare professionals with an interest in and/or involved in the teaching, research, practice and promotion of haematopoietic cellular stem cell therapy and products.


Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation became a common procedure at university hospitals in Johannesburg and in Cape Town in the mid-1980’s. Although initially most transplants were autologous, there has been a substantial growth in allogeneic transplantation since the early 1990’s. Several transplant groups have been established in the private sector, further increasing the scope of this activity.
