The WMDA is an active organisation. WMDA envisions to find the best suitable stem cell source by connecting healthcare professionals worldwide, supporting their career development, harmonising education and promoting the interests of volunteer donors in the global arena.
The activities we undertake serve donor registries and cord blood banks in their efforts to find the best suitable stem cell source for patients. Once a year, we organise a congress attended by approximately 300 healthcare professionals. In addition, we develop and organise education and training programs, publish scientific journals, and offer a career development program. WMDA is governed by a Board and its committees, which are supported by the executive office located in Leiden. An international team of 12 staff members works in a dynamic, results-driven and open environment and takes pride in serving the association in an efficient manner.
