Project: Development of techniques to isolate and manipulate human stem cells for hematopoizeetic cell therapy.

project duration
01-JAN-01 – 31-DEC-04
This project intents to m ake a contribution to the field of hematopietic stem cell transplantation for treatment of malignancies and autoimmune diseases. In this proposal three aspects of stem cell transplantation will be further studied. 1) Stem cell source and isolation of CD34 negative cells. 2) Methods to expand these cells ex vivo. Optimizing culture conditions. 3) The development of a new animal model which allows for immune reconstitution.
