About Juliet Barker, M.B., B.S.
With a career devoted to stem cell transplantation for over 25 years and being internationally recognized in this field, as the Director of Bone Marrow Transplant and Cell Therapy at Weill Cornell-NewYork Presbyterian I seek to lead a state-of-the art Program. I am deeply committed to ensure my team delivers the highest quality of clinical care. A special focus of our Program will be to extend access to complex health care such as transplantation to under-served populations. I am also committed to performing associated research that will advance our field for the ultimate benefit of patients with life-threatening diseases. I also have a major interest in mentorship of more junior medical staff as well as allied health care professionals to develop their academic careers to the benefit of patient care and our Program.
