Hematology (Adults)

The Hematology (Adults) research group of the University Clinic of Hematology & Central Hematology Laboratory conducts experimental, clinical and in vitro research.

Our main research approaches are the following:

  • Mouse models of hematophysiology & hematopathology with their translation to human hematological disorders
  • Hematopoiesis & molecular genetics
  • Hemostasis
  • Inflammation & Hematopoiesis

Our focus is on the following main topics:

  • Mechanisms and disorders of hematopoiesis:
    • Mechanisms: stem cell biology, erythropoiesis, telomere biology, molecular genetics of cancer
    • Disorders: anemia, chronic myeloid leukemia & other myeloproliferative neoplasias
  • Mechanisms of hemostasis & thrombosis
  • Disorders of hemostasis & thrombosis: thrombotic microangiopathies, Von Willebrand disease, hemophilia, protein S deficiency
  • Antithrombotic & antihemorrhagic targets
  • Transplantation
  • Immunosenescence
  • Mechanisms of inflammation induced hematopoiesis and Ribosomopathies

Additional research topics are iron metabolism, transfusion medicine, epidemiology in the field of hemostasis & thrombosis, management of anticoagulation.
