An international research programFocusing on all HSCT complications
Call for projects
Since the lifting of its embargo in April 2015, CRYOSTEM intends to enhance its collection of biological resources through of a call for projects program launched amongst the international scientific community pursuing one major goal: to better understand the biology of the complications of HSCT (which also constitutes an excellent opportunity to explore, as true to life as possible, many challenges in contemporary immunology and cancer) and in turn to better prevent, diagnose and treat these complications. Research projects submission can be done all year round, all applications are evaluated by an international group of independent experts at least 4 times a year.
Today, to accelerate these discoveries, CRYOSTEM is giving access to almost 200,000 biological samples of transplant donor-recipient pair in its collection to academic and industrial laboratories from around the world. Initially focused on the single disease of graft-versus-host (Graft versus Host Disease or GvHD), the scope was further extended in November 2016 to all the complications of HSCT (with the authorization of the Committee of the Protection of Persons – CPP – South Mediterranean I).
