Organisation

NIHR Blood and Transplant Research Unit in Stem Cells and Immunotherapies at University College London (UCL BTRU)

The UCL BTRU is an academic partner of NHS Blood and Transplant and supports their need for research. It focuses on blood stem cell transplantations (the transfer of immature cells that can develop into all types of blood cells, stem cells, which lead to new blood cells in the recipient) and immune therapies that replace, repair or strengthen the immune system’s response to infection or disease with the goal to better treat inherited genetic disorders or cancers of blood and lymph nodes.
