Symposium June 29-30, 2023 | Historisches Kaufhaus Freiburg (Germany)


Symposium “Advances in Stem Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy 2023” in honor of Prof Jürgen Finke

Advances in Stem Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy 2023 | Universitätsklinikum Freiburg (

It was in 1989 that the first patients underwent allogeneic marrow transplants in Freiburg. The field of hematopoietic cell transplantation has developed remarkably since then, allowing for transplantation of elderly patients and achieving higher cure rates due to improvements in many areas, such as novel graft­versus-host disease prevention and treatment strategies, post allo-HCT maintenance therapy and approaches to enhance the graft-versus-leukemia effect.

In honor of Prof Jürgen Finke, who has developed allogeneic stem cell transplantation in the Department of Hematology and Oncology at Freiburg University Medical Center, we have invited experts for an international symposium covering the major topics raised by recent developments in the field. These will cover the role of the intestinal microbiome and the intestinal immune system in GVHD, tissue-regenerative approaches for acute GVHD, chronic GVHD biology and treatment, basic mechanisms of leukemia immune evasion, novel CAR T cell and engineered NK cell products. This event will give you the opportunity to debate the current concepts of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cell Therapy at the beautiful venue of the Historische Kaufhaus in Freiburg.

We invite you to share your knowledge in discussions covering science, exchanging thoughts and ideas, and seeing old friends and making new ones.
