About the department

The Department of Pediatric Stem Cell Transplantation and Immunology offers treatment for children, adolescents and young adults with malignant and non-malignant diseases. The department specializes in autologous, allogeneic and haploidentical stem cell transplantation. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Peter Bader.

The department performs more than 50 transplantations every year. It is one of the largest pediatric Transplant Centers in Germany.  Particular attention is paid to haploidentical stem cell transplantation. With this procedure, parents can become donors for transplantation. Thus, stem cell transplantation becomes possible for each child.

In addition, the department specializes on immunology. In the Outpatient Clinic for Immunodeficiency Disorders, the specialists of the department treat patients with congenital and acquired immunodeficiency disorders.The patients with perinatal HCV exposure and chronic HCV infections are treated here as well.

Key focuses of the department include:

  • Autologous stem cell transplantation
  • Allogeneic stem cell transplantation
  • Haploidentical stem cell transplantation
  • CIK-cell therapy (within the framework of a clinical study)
  • CAR-T-cell therapy (within the framework of a clinical study)
