"Being a NCBI bank is a prestigious designation which further validates the procedures and operations which CORD:USE utilizes to ensure that our cord blood units are of the highest possible quality," said Dr. Edward Guindi, M.D., President and CEO of CORD:USE. "CORD:USE is honored to have assembled a world-class team of pioneers and leaders in the field of cord blood banking and transplantation, and this award is wonderful recognition of CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank, which they have helped build."

"We are thrilled to be employing these resources along with ours to achieve our mission to help many more patients in need."
