Biography

Peiman Hematti, MD joined the Division of Hematology/Oncology/Bone Marrow Transplantation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine in July 2004. Dr. Hematti completed a combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and then Clinical Hematology fellowship at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health. While at NIH he spent 4 years in the laboratory of Dr. Cynthia Dunbar studying the cellular biology hematopoietic stem cells. Dr. Hematti's participates in clinical care of bone marrow transplant patients. He is also director of Clinical Hematopoietic Cell Processing Laboratory, and medical director of Hematopoietic Cell Collection facility at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. In that capacity he oversees all peripheral blood and bone marrow collections for hematopoietic cell transplantation or other cellular therapy applications. His clinical research interest is in the use of mesenchymal stem cells for treatment of graft versus host disease and other immune dysregulation disorders, novel cell therapies for hematological malignancies, and use of bone marrow stem cells in regenerative medicine.

Dr. Hematti's laboratory research focuses on investigating the immune modulatory properties of mesenchymal stem cells. He is collaborating with many investigators on the UW-campus studying the potential of these cells in many different pre-clinical models. He is also actively pursuing the goal of generating clinical- applicable mesenchymal stem cells at UW-Waisman GMP facility. Generation of clinically-grade FDA-approved mesenchymal stem cells will enable all investigators on the campus to test these cells in their clinical trials of choice. [Dr Hematti's Lab Page]
