Be the Match Bone Marrow Drive

  • University of Tennessee Health Science Center 8 South Dunlap Street Memphis, TN 38163 USA (map)

UTHSC will host Be the Match from 1-4 p.m. in the GEB Lobby (8 S. Dunlap St.) and 12-1 in the Madison Plaza Lobby (920 Madison Ave.) where the medical district community can come to the UTHSC campus to register online to become a bone marrow donor. Those who register will then receive a cotton swab kit by mail to collect sample cells which they will then mail back. The sample is then used to compare matching human leukocyte antigen, or protein markers, of the donor to a patient in need of a bone marrow transplant. If a match it made, the registered donor will then be contacted for next steps.
