Research interests

I have dedicated my whole 20-years-career as a physician, scientist and "teacher" to pediatric hemato-oncology, especially leukemia and lymphoma.

  • Enhancement of diagnostics and therapy for children with ALL, r/r ALL, NHL, r/r NHL and Hodgkin's disease
  • Outcomes and prognosis in children with ALL, r/r ALL, NHL, r/r NHL and Hodgkin's disease
  • Cancer predisposition
  • Immunotherapy including CAR-T-cell therapies
  • Acute toxicity of cancer therapy
  • Post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD)
  • Outreach programs for low- and middle-income countries
  • Cooperation of Cancer Societies (i.e., EICNHL and NHL-i-BFM and SIOPE)
