The scientific section of the Dept. of Hematology/Oncology is constituted of various research subgroups with a common focus on the development of new treatment strategies for cellular and humoral immunotherapy of malignant diseases. In addition, core research projects include studies on the identification and characterization of tumor-specific T-cell responses, on tumor immune escape mechanisms with a focus on tumor metabolites, and on allogeneic stem transplantation with a special emphasis on suppressor cells to modulate the graft-versus host immune responses and effector cells to select for graft versus leukemia responses.

Currently,  descriptions of some of our research activites are only available in german."
