A collection unique in Europe
Launched within the framework of Investments for the Future by the National Research Agency (ANR), at the heart of the French Government’s Plan Cancer and supported by the National Cancer Institute (INCa), the CRYOSTEM’s project was initiated in 2011 under the auspices of the Francophone Society of Marrow Transplantations and Cellular Therapy (SFGM-TC) to accelerate research in the area of complications of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT), previously called bone marrow transplantation. Today, CRYOSTEM brings together all French transplant units, 28 Biological Resource Centers (BRC) as well as more than 400 French research and healthcare players in the field of severe blood diseases.More

Today the CRYOSTEM community offers academic and industrial research teams, a collection of almost 200 000 samples to address life-threatening complications of HSCT.

CRYOSTEM is a wonderful opportunity for researchers to better understand the biological mechanisms, to improve the prevention and the management of the complications of HSCT.

Throughout the year, CRYOSTEM encourages researchers to apply to gain access to the collection.

What interests us it is being able to discriminate early before transplantation between patients who are going to benefit from the treatment.

An informed patient is a better armed patient : at U2T, we use games to increase patients awareness of the HSCT complications.
