“Knowing that over the years we’ve improved the outcomes for survivors, that drives me to try and improve things further. I love that you meet a family and although you give them a terrible diagnosis, 12 months later you can be looking at pictures of them at school, birthdays and working, and you see there is light at the end of the tunnel.”

Dr Adam Nelson is a Staff Specialist in Bone Marrow Transplant and Oncology at the Kids Cancer Centre, Sydney Children’s Hospital. Dr Nelson’s clinical and research interests lie in the areas of bone marrow failure and cellular therapy.

Dr Nelson spent 7 years as faculty at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, a world leader in bone marrow failure and cellular therapy, where I developed expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and research into pathogenesis bone marrow failure syndromes and related complications. I was also the BMT-lead for cellular therapy and the Principal Investigator of a number of studies using CAR-T cells to treat leukaemia, as well as developing novel T-cell therapies to treat viral infections after bone marrow transplantation.
