The EBMT was foun­ded in 1974 with the aim of faci­li­ta­ting the exchan­ge of expe­ri­ence bet­ween phy­si­ci­ans and sci­en­tists and the con­duc­tion of cli­ni­cal tri­als in the field of stem cell trans­plan­ta­ti­on. The data cen­ter of the DRST, housed at the ZKRD, is respon­si­ble for for­war­ding the data collec­ted to the EBMT data­ba­se as a means of sup­por­ting glo­bal sci­en­ti­fic studies.
