Pediatric Stem Cell Transplantation

The chair is linked to the program of pediatric stem cell transplantation and LUMC research line “Transplantation and Immunomodulation (31301)”. The program serves as national referral centre for pediatric patients with congenital and acquired immune-hematological disorders that can be cured with allogeneic stem cell transplantation. The program combines this regenerative medicine modality with translational, innovative and international oriented research with the aim to optimize stem cell transplantation outcome. The program is also active in the development and clinical implementation of stem cell gene therapy for severe combined immune deficiency and hemoglobinopathies. The program is integrated in the NFU approved expertise centres for combined immune deficiencies, graft versus host disease and hemoglobinopathies.
