We aim at developing and evaluating new diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic approaches for paediatric leukaemias using high-end multi-colour flow cytometry.

The last decades brought enormous progress in our understanding of the cellular and molecular biology of cancerous disease. One of the areas of hope is cancer immune therapy. We work on concepts for manipulating the immune system in order to trigger anti-tumour immunity, which has the capacity to control the growth of cancer cells.

Our group primarily focuses on the improvement of treatment outcomes, particularly in transplant recipients and patients with life-threatening infections, by developing and implementing new diagnostic technologies.
Studies & Statistics for Integrated Research and Projects
Prof. Ruth Ladenstein, MD, MBA, cPM
Multinational networking is fundamental for clinical research of malignant cancer in children and adolescents. Only controlled large-scale clinical trials allow improving complex treatment strategies, whilst smaller studies allow testing innovative drug medications to further improve survival rates. The clinical trail unit S2IRP undertakes all efforts to serve the complex tasks of clinical trial management.
Innovative cancer models
Martin Distel, PhD
Our research focus is on the generation of pediatric cancer models in zebrafish to better understand tumor initiation and tumor progression on a cellular and molecular level.
