Indian Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (ISBMT) envisions to promote all aspects associated with the transplantation or transfer of hematopoietic stem cells and immune modulating cells from all sources and donor types including basic, clinical and translational research, education, standardization, quality control, and accreditation for the different transplant-related procedures. As part of this vision, the ISBMT Registry, (ISBMTR) formed in 1983, maintains an accurate database for stem cell transplants done in India by coordinating with the various transplant centers.

The main function of the registry is to collect accurate and good quality clinical data. The main use of these data is clinical research, but it will also be used to support the mission of the ISBMT in aspects such as the inspection, auditing and accreditation of transplant centres. Web based data capture system was developed, tested and launched to capture ISBMT data across the country. ISBMT centers needs to submit their annual transplant data through web based online system.

ISBMT Registry Committee was formed to guide and coordinate registry data collection with registered ISBMT members.
