Dr. Lacelle is the Director, Technical Supervisor, and Clinical Consultant of the Transplant Immunology and Histocompatibility Laboratories. She is board certified by the American Board of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (Diplomat) and accredited by the American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics for bone marrow/HSC transplantation-related and unrelated donors, solid organ transplantation-deceased and live donor, and histocompatibility testing for other clinical purposes. In addition to her clinical skills, Dr. Lacelle has extensive research experience in the field immunology.
