NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tulane University in New Orleans has formally unveiled a $3.8 million renovation and expansion of its Bone Marrow Transplant Unit.

         The university said Thursday in a news release that the project began in November. It includes an increase in patient beds from seven to 16. It also includes state-of-the-art airflow and water filtration systems.

         Tulane's bone marrow transplant program was founded in 1994.
