Making the most out of stem cells

We are actively training physicians around the country to help identify babies and family members who may qualify for our Newborn Possibilities Program®. Our greatest hope is that groundbreaking research with cord blood stem cells can help children with serious conditions in a new way.

What is CBR’s Newborn Possibilities Program?

CBR is invested in realizing the full potential of newborn stem cells. Through the Newborn Possibilities Program, CBR offers:

  • • Free banking: Families with a qualifying medical need will receive free cord blood processing and five years of storage for cord blood and cord tissue. 10,000+ patients identified and counting.
  • Family Health RegistryTM: All families can participate in advancing stem cell research and potential treatments by completing a family health questionnaire, which collects data on the most common conditions affecting CBR families and helps us focus our stem cell research. 200,000+ participants and counting.

Who can qualify for free banking?*

    • A full sibling or biological parent to the newborn who has been diagnosed with a disease or disorder currently treatable with stem cells.
  • • A baby that is identified during pregnancy or at birth as having a health condition that may benefit from experimental stem cell use.

If you believe you are eligible, CBR’s genetic counselors are available to discuss your family’s medical history and to answer questions about how newborn stem cells might be applicable to your family. Speak with one today at 1.888.932.6568.
