Research

pipettenThe Department of Hematology of the LUMC performs scientific research on the pathogenesis of hematological malignancies and aplastic anemia. 

The department conducts basic research in the field of immunobiology of allogeneic stem cell transplantation, in particular in the areas of rejection, graft versus host disease, graft versus tumor reactivity and opportunistic infections after allogeneic stem cell transplantation. 

Translational research focuses on implementation of immunological interventions in the treatment of hematological malignancies with allogeneic stem cell transplantation and cellular immunotherapy.

Our clinical research is focused on phase I / II studies in the development of new therapeutic interventions after allogeneic stem cell transplantation, and new forms of treatment of acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
