Unit profile


We study the blood and immune system and its diseases. A particular focus area is how congenital genetic variation affects blood and immune cells, and how such variation can be utilized clinically. Which genes and gene mutations control, for example, the risk of blood cancer? Can we use them to prevent and treat? Who controls our blood group set? Can we use them for safer transfusion? Another important focus area is clinical trials of new drugs for blood cancer diseases.
