Sure!  We do this in the clinical setting for autologous marrow transplants.
We also do this to obtain hematopoietic progenitor cells and endothelial
cells for more basic research.  

Can you describe a bit more specifically what you have in mind?  Are there
specific cell populations you want to culture -- stem and progenitor cells,
stromal cells, endothelial cells?  How long do want to keep the cells alive?
What will you be doing with the cells?
