Introduction

The Haematology and Immunology group (HEIM) is studying the biology and treatment of haematological diseases. It contains research groups clustered around different topics such as the Biology of Multiple Myeloma, Stem Cell Biology, MHC dysregulation in haematological malignancies and thrombophilia, in particular molecular analysis of antithrombin and protein C deficiency.

Biology of Multiple Myeloma

Following subjects are under study:
1. Biology of multiple myeloma and related diseases.
2. Molecular and phenotypic follow-up of B cell malignancies during therapy.

Stem cell biology

Following subjects are under study:
1. Stem cell processing for clinical transplantation.
2. Analysis of phenotype of haemopoietic stem cells in health and disease.
3. Homing of mesenchymal stem cell in bone marrow.

Thrombophilia

Following subjects are under study:
1 Phenotypic and genotypic investigation of congenital antithrombin deficiency
2 Phenotypic and genotypic investigation of congenital protein C deficiency
