Leukaemias

Immunological Diagnostics

Univ.-Doz. Dr. Michael Dworzak (MD) We aim at developing and evaluating new diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic approaches for paediatric leukaemias using high-end multi-colour flow cytometry.

Biology of Leukaemias

N.N. We are trying to understand why and how leukemia evolves and use our knowledge to improve treatment and advance cure of affected children.

Genetics of Leukaemias

Dr. Sabine Strehl (PhD) Tracking down the faulty genes that cause leukamia with the ultimate goal to establish predictive biomarkers for the optimisation of risk-adapted therapy.

Clinical Genetics

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Oskar Haas (MD) Leukaemias are malignant diseases of the haematopoietic system that are caused by genetic defects. Our primary task is to diagnose and in detail characterise these diverse changes which are important for specific treatment and basic research, with the use of molecular and cytogenetic methods.
