Scholarship Description:

Our innovative research program uses cutting- edge technologies to optimize a novel strategy of graft manipulation (alpha/beta T-cell/CD19 B- cell depleted haploidentical stem cell transplantation) for treating children with malignant and non-malignant disorders. Our group aims to understand the impact of the graft composition on the outcome of children affected by malignant and life-threatening non-malignant disorders, further engineer the graft to improve graft-versus-leukemia and minimize graft-versus-host disease and enable the use of gamma/delta (gd) T cells for cancer immunotherapy.
