In the department for stem cell transplantation and immunology several modern transplant procedures are performed.
The key aspects of our clinical research are:
- Performance and optimization of haploidentical stem cell transplantation
- Improvement of stem cell-based therapies for malignant and nonmalignant diseases
- Application of mesenchymal stem cells for the treatment of graft versus host disease (GvHD) and tolerance induction
- Early detection of relapse following allogeneic stem cell transplantation applying molecular biology techniques
- Development of cellular immunotherapies, particularly of tumor-specific and leukemia-specific T cells, NK cells and cytokine-induced killer cells
- Participation in various therapy optimization studies by the German Society of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology (GPOH), EBMT, EWOG-MDS, I-BFM
- Conduction of diverse clinical studies
In order to optimize and develop new therapies are we performing specific research at the interface of pre-clinical and clinical research.
