LifeCord is a community-based public cord blood bank that collects and stores umbilical cord blood for the purpose of clinical cures and basic research in the field of stem cell transplantation.
We participate in the network of public cord blood banks affiliated with the National Marrow Donor Program’s (NMDP) Be The Match Registry and the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (CIBMTR).
LifeCord is a program of LifeSouth Community Blood Centers which performs community and donor education, cord blood collection and processing, distribution of the cord blood units, and evaluation of transplant outcomes. We also work to increase the diversity of donors from which cord blood is collected. Click here to learn more about cord donation.
